Christmas is by far my favorite holiday. I LOVE it! Everything about it. My sister recently reminded me of my feelings for Christmas night. It is the worst, it's over, all the anticipation, the feelings, emotions, it is over and that is depressing. I normally take all my decorations down immediately. They are just cruel reminders to me that the season is no more.
That being said, I do normally respect Thanksgiving and wait until the day after to set up my Christmas decorations. Although the Christmas music starts in our home in early November. For some reason my boys are extra anxious for Christmas this year. They started asking right after Halloween if we could put our Christmas decorations up. I was able to hold them off until last weekend, when we made a deal. They could put their tree up in their room and paint the nutcrackers they have been bugging about for their own little decorations. They were so excited, and now keep asking to put the rest of the decorations up. I think this weekend I will cave. (Who am I kidding, I can't wait either!) After all, if we go to Colorado for Thanksgiving, I will want to come home to a Christmas house!
