Over the weekend I was thinking a lot about "the Holidays" in general. I realized that, speaking for myself, since Halloween has become such a Big Deal, I really now have the sense that "the Holiday Season," in the U.S. anyway, doesn't start at Thanksgiving. No, it now starts at Halloween.  Undecided

I was also remembering how I used to be really annoyed by Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving. I still think it's a bit much for stores to have Christmas stuff displayed before Halloween  Roll Eyes but I've pretty much reconciled myself to starting to prepare for Christmas when Halloween is over. Last year I "gave in" and gave up standing on principle and refusing to start my Christmas preparations until after Thanksgiving. I was a bit chagrined to discover, when I did this last year, that my December was a whole lot less stressful when I stopped trying to cram too much into the few weeks--really weekends--between Thanksgiving Day and December 24. The answer for me is not to cut back on what I do each Christmas Season, but rather to start it earlier.

And so, since I spent this past Saturday cleaning my entire condo  Tongue  the job for next Saturday will be to take down my current model train layout and prepare for the Christmas layout. And after work today I am going to K-Mart to see if they have Christmas trees available yet (I'll be surprised if they don't) because I need a new Christmas tree for this year.

I started my Christmas shopping in January... I'm almost finished now so fingers crossed I can enjoy December! I had planned to do a lot of Christmas crafting this year but didn't get round to it because of my re-interview preperations and my house move. Next year that's my plan!

Yes, indeed, my local K-Mart has its Christmas trees out. Unfortunately they didn't have anything that I liked or that fit my needs in my small home.  Undecided

And the prices were outrageous!  Angry

wow! Now that´s planning Smiley Must be nice to have it almost over with.
We´ve solved it differently. We are all gonna go out together and have a big dinner at a fancy restaurant near Christmas, and call it quits.  Roll Eyes

Mine too! My family will get flacons of Scottish single malt whiskey, except for my son who's underaged and an athlete. He'll get a Scottish scarf in the Stevenson tartan. And my daughter who's pregnant. I already gave her her Shetland wool sweater.

Isn't anybody getting a Shetland pony?  Huh?  Grin
