Christmas is coming.
Yes, I realize that in past years, I’ve berated the jump the gun retailers who start pushing Christmas the day after Halloween.
But I’m actually looking forward to decorating for Christmas this year. I can’t explain it, but because I’m an event planner, I have to seize that Christmas spirit when it hits.
Case in point: Last year, we had maybe 30 ornaments on our tree. By the time we put it up, I was so DONE with holiday decorating, that I just couldn’t handle one more colored light, candy cane or styrofoam cup bell ornament.
Things are gonna be different this year.
We may be setting a new family record for earliest Christmas decorating, but by Jove, we’ll have some spirit! 🙂
Which leads me (in a strange, roundabout sort of way) to Music Monday. Growing up, my mom had four Christmas albums that made the rounds during the holidays. My Christmas music teeth were cut on the classics.
Johnny Mathis, Bing Crosby, Boots Randolph and Andy Williams.
So it’s no surprise that one of my favorite Christmas movies EVER is “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen.
Happy Early Decorating.
