Just a little pre-holiday fun…

My brother-in-law can be very vocal about his displeasure in seeing Christmas paraphernalia hit the stores weeks before Thanksgiving (a sentiment shared by many, I know). But while he frowns, I can’t wipe the grin off my face, for I represent the other (and likely smaller) crowd that thrills at the sight of all that red and white making an appearance on retail shelves.

For the sake of my family, I try not to overexpose them to too many Christmas carols before Thanksgiving. On my own, however, I start filtering the uplifting songs into my repertoire by late August. For the sake of my family, I refrain from pulling out any Christmas decor until after Halloween. Yet for the sake of myself, I do begin the decorating process come November 1st. 🙂 I have always been that way, and no matter how society’s views change on this controversial holiday, I pray I will always find joy, comfort, and peace in my own corner of the Christmas world.

  1. Thanks for the bit of Christmas you sent my way today. I got a tad bit into Christmas as well…I made the Blueberry Jam that I give as gifts. It was way too hot last August to make it, but just right for today. Jay
