This is the time of year when a lot of people complain that all of our holidays are blending together, and that the commercialization of Christmas begins WAY too early.
They have a point.
But I confess… I LOVE IT! I don’t mind at all if we start to see Christmas decorations in October, and I don’t mind Christmas decor up at Thanksgiving. I don’t even mind Christmas music in early November. It’s all so much fun, that I say stretch it out as long as possible!
Yep – I’m one of those.
Furthermore, decorating for Christmas is so much work that I can’t imagine only enjoying it for a couple of weeks before packing it all away again. (Have you ever wondered why in the movies so often they have a tradition of decorating the tree on Christmas Eve? Oh my goodness, what’s the point?? Way too much work for just one day’s enjoyment.)
Clearly I’ve already watched too many Hallmark Christmas movies…
