I’ve been easing my way into Christmas this year. I didn’t do any decorating until it was actually December, and I haven’t turned on my Pandora Christmas station just yet. Christmas is my favorite holiday, yet it doesn’t feel as special when I start seeing Christmas goods at the store before it’s even Halloween! It’s more special when it’s reserved for just a few weeks out of the year.
This week I decorated the office with Christmas lights, bulbs, garland, and a tree. We can’t have these things at home because our cats can’t help themselves. That still bums me out a bit, but this year I realized I could decorate the outside of the house with lights—our rewiring project this past summer provided us with outside outlets! So that’s the plan for the weekend. I also hung a wreath for the very first time, and now I understand why everyone loves real Christmas trees—the smell is wonderful.
Hope you all are enjoying the holiday season so far. Soon I’ll spend an evening wrapping gifts and watching Christmas movies … then promptly hiding all the gifts from curious kitties!
