Did you know that Christmas is just 4 months from today? Oh yes, dear friends.... it's almost time to deck the halls with balls of holly and time to get creative and jolly....
Actually I read something this morning that informed me of that fact. And it made me wish that, in my younger years, I had taken more pictures of the things that happened over time. Because back when I worked at the airline, I used to post a sign on my office door "Pay Days Till Christmas". It has always been known that I'm a little crazy about Christmas. But what was even funnier was when my office was moved one year...and the employees that commented about how they wouldn't be able to check my door to see how many more pay days we had to go.
My Mom is already talking about the holidays. She does everything UP BIG at their house. They have a party where they invite all of their friends that she and Daddy really look forward to. Last year they skipped having the party due to the fact that a few of their friends had lost loved ones. They both regretted it after the fact. So this year she's planning on having the party again. So she's planning when we'll all have to get together and decorate their house. Lights outside. Candles down the sidewalk. Trees everywhere. My favorite tree at their house though is the one that they put up in the foyer. It's gorgeous.
So, how early do you start planning the festivities of the season?
