I’m a Christmas person. I just love the holidays! In Canada, our Thanksgiving comes in October, so once Halloween is past, we’re good to go for Christmas!
This year, I put off putting up the tree until we were about a week into November, but then I couldn’t hold my 9-year-old back any longer, and we put up all our decorations. Since we have snow outside already, it just feels appropriate.
I’m also one of those really early Christmas shoppers, because I like to get my shopping done without pressure. I also have gifts to mail to my parents, so I need to be timely if I’m going to get everything to the post office on time.
That’s why I picked up this year’s wrapping paper already–and I really like it! These Christmas trappings just make me happy. I enjoy this time of year–the run up to Christmas! I don’t let it get stressful because we stick to a budget and make time for the things that matter to us most–cookies, Christmas movies, carols playing in the background… The good stuff.
Anyone else enjoy the Christmas preamble? Or does it all just stress you out?
(I do have two Christmas novels coming out this month and December! So I thought I’d leave a couple of links for you…)
