I think it finally hit me that the holiday season is upon us. When driving to a friend’s last night, I passed by her neighbor’s home, which was already completely decked out in Christmas lights. I was about to be all appalled and judge-y when I realized that really they’re only, by traditional standards, about a week early. Wow. A week.
Sure, I’ve already heard a Christmas song or two in the stores and seen all of the Christmas decorations go up in my local Target, but for the most part I’ve just rolled my eyes, knowing that stores push the holidays earlier and earlier every year. But something about that house being all lit up… It snapped me into reality.
Being the total type-A planner that I am, I suppose I should be concerned about Christmas gifts and all that. I am not remotely prepared. Even though I’ve seen the light (ha), I still haven’t caught whole holiday spirit. Maybe I’m being overly-traditional and waiting until next Thursday to really jump on the holiday bandwagon.
Have you started thinking about the holidays yet? Are you in full celebration mode or do you wait until after Turkey Day to get in the spirit?
