Christmas

I am just itching to get started decorating. I was given a huge trunk and tote full of Christmas stuff and I cant wait to set everything up! My boyfriend makes fun of me because I am a fireplace channel addict. I love the Christmas Tunes!

I turn it on and write cards or wrap presents. Bake goodies.

Since I'm off work except for weekends all winter, I am trying to make a lot of our gifts for family. So I'll have lots to do with my time!

It snowed today for a whole 5 minutes. It all melted on contact and it was sunny out right after.

Re: Christmas

  • Our snow stayed a bit.  We were at the inlaws a little north of Kingston and there was enough snow for some snowballs.  It can hold off longer though and I won't mind.  I am glad it wasn't snowing for trick or treating.

  • Good lord, woman! It's only Nov 1st! lol I have a very strict rule about decorating my house: everything goes up the first weekend in Dec and comes down the first weekend in Jan. If it were up to DH though, the house would be decorated for Christmas all year long! lol
  • I kid you not, when I lived in Detroit there is a radio station that starts playing all Christmas music, all the time starting right after Halloween. Is it just me or does all the Christmas stuff start a little earlier every year?

    I haven't started my gift shopping yet, getting down the decorations, etc. Guess I better get my butt in gear.

  • I also try to wait until the beginning of December to decorate...but DH always tries to start getting things out earlier. LOL

  • We typically wait until the first weekend of December to put up our decorations. I love Christmas, but I really dislike the whole gifting part of it. I do however enjoy cheesy made for tv holiday movies and seeing family the most.

    Scrooge!  :P

     

    I plan to start decorating this week :D

  • The stores here had christmas crap up right after back to school.

    I hate gift giving too.  We get something for my parents each year and thats it (nothing for sibs.)  On DH's side though, they go all out and it pisses me off.  It takes at least 5 hours to open all the gifts.  So much of it is junk and I end up getting rid of it after a couple of years.  I think MIL spends at least $2000 a year on gifts.  I have suggested to DH that we don't buy much (like a gift per person) but he got all insulted that I want to change the way his family does Christmas.  He doesn't get that we can't afford it!

    On a side note, I am not allowed to decorate until December, and I like taking it down on boxing day.

  • I will start putting stuff up on american thanksgiving,  we get the tree first weekend of December and it all comes down on the 2nd of January.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas Decoarating, giving gifts, opening gifts,  the whole deal.  I adore it.  I start shopping in September,  I am almost done now.  If you start early it's easier on you pocket book.   That way you don't spend a fortune in one month.   We also cash in points gathered throughout the year.   It's great.
