The Christmas Season Begins

As most of you have realized Christmas decorations are already in the stores, all the Halloween stuff has been pushed to the back of the aisle and the Christmas commercials have started. Most people are in a uproar, it is not even Halloween yet! And as everyone is displeased with this development and expressing their hatred for this 'Christmas spirit before Halloween' fad, I chime in about how it is just plain wrong... but I don't actually mean it... That is right, I like it, love it even! I wish it would start sooner, and for me it does. I do all the secret prepping I can before it is socially acceptable to start getting excited, I buy Christmas gifts and even daydream about decorating... Lucky for me Dave does not mind, sure he is not quite as into it as me BUT I am wearing him down, it is only a matter of time :) He gets more and more into my definition of Christmas spirit every year and becomes excited for the holiday earlier and earlier, though I still haven't convinced him that decorating doesn't need to wait for Halloween... You could argue that it is people like me who made this 'unholy practice' start in the first place... And that is why I smile and agree how wrong it is to start planning and getting ready for Christmas before the 31st has even happened... You could argue it but then I will bake you some awesome cookies and pick you out the best gift and all of the sudden you won't care, I may be eccentric when it comes to my favorite holiday but I am good at it (it must be all those years of being Santa). I don't push my love for Christmas on anyone, that is why I haven't switched my blog background yet or started playing Christmas music. I keep it quiet, my ipod is filled with holiday apps, I have my blog background all picked out, and I have been counting down the days since August (63 days today) . It may seem odd but I can't help it! The snow, the lights, the music, the spirit of the season... I love it all and have ever since I can remember!

I apologize if my 'not so secret anymore' love for this awesome time of year offends anyone but what can I say... Except,
HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Haha, awesome. I've always suspected as much, but since you always adamantly agreed with me that music on the radio should wait to turn christmas til after thanksgiving, i figured my suspicions were unfounded... NOW i know the truth :-)

Cute! I agree on some level! I love the in home part of it - the planning, decor, music, gifts (My goal is to buy all my xmas gifts before Halloween each year!) etc - that can be early! I just don't like the commercialized aspect of it all at times!

I say switch your blog background now! I was kind of thinking the same thing the other day when I was working on an advent calendar instead of my kids' Halloween costumes!
