I refuse to give in to the Christmas spirit til after Thanksgiving! I am changing the station if I hear Christmas carols on the radio. I am not going to watch any Christmas movies until after next Thursday. Yes, I am making gifts and looking in second hand stores for gifts and getting gifts ready to mail to my swap partners. Those are things I have to do in order to meet deadlines. I am not going to get out all the decorations until after Thanksgiving dinner. I am not going to start wrapping gifts and sending cards until after Thanksgiving. I always start decorating Thanksgiving night and I plan on doing that again this year. 2 of my daughters have trees up already! Have to add that Megan's tree is a support your troops tree and decorated in red white and blue with yellow ribbons and will stay up till her husband Brian comes home.I admit I would love to start decorating and putting up all the trees around the house. I love Christmas but I also love Thanksgiving. Life seems to be rushed enough without me helping rush the holidays. Secretly I really really want to start the Christmas celebration but I promised myself I would carry on the tradition of starting that holiday after we celebrate Thanksgiving. So all my blog neighbors start decorating your blogs, start posting pictures and ideals for Christmas and I can go to your sites and celebrate a little early and I won't be cheating!!! Until next Thursday I will have fall decorations and Thanksgiving pictures on my blog and in my house. Right after dinner next Thursday...... Watch out for the Flurry!!! Cause I will be a Christmas decorating speed demon!
