So it’s the day after Thanksgiving.
The official start of the Christmas season.
But I must confess – that we’ve already started. (Oh dear – I just heard some of you gasp in horror!)
Normally we would wait till today to pull out the Christmas music. But to be totally honest – we’ve been listening now for weeks.
Yes, weeks. We caved in early November. I must have heard O Holy Night by at least 4 different artists at least 2 dozen times already. And loved every one.
It’s not just music. We already put together 2 of our Christmas puzzles, drank peppermint hot chocolate, and started Christmas shopping.
When we cave in – we really cave.
And the Christmas movies! Oh my! The girls and I jumped in with both feet. Our favorite evening activity is to curl up in quilts watching a Christmas movie, trying to guess how it ends.
Popcorn and hot chocolate make it even better.
But the wait is over – it’s now officially Christmas season! We don’t have to hide our Christmas spirit anymore!
I can’t wait to start baking!
And making candy!
Anybody want to go caroling?
And may I be the first to say, “Merry Christmas!”

I was right there with you. Our tree went up the week before last, and my Christmas cd’s have been playing in the car since Halloween. I even have a big part of our gifts wrapped. I’ve decided I’m getting all the mundane stuff done early so I can spend the next few weeks just soaking up the wonder.
I love this post & I love you, my friend! Such a joyous time of year & our family is enjoying every minute of it as well! Wish it would slow down a bit…
Much to the girls’ delight, I came home with several new Christmas movies after a day of shopping on Tuesday. 😉 I think we’re nearing the 80 movie mark about now… Eeeek! So fun!
Oh & “Merry Christmas” to you, too! ❤
I am ahead of the curve this year and I must admit it surely is nice! Next week I will have to have another shopping spurt and try to finish… I love the holiday season!
