Back off, Christmas.

Now, don't get me wrong. I love Christmas. I love it, love it, LOVE IT! I have been known to play Christmas music in July. (love it)

However, we have a rule in our house. It's one that I used to get frustrated with, but am now thankful for. Nothing Christmas-y is allowed to take root until December 1st. Nothing. You know what? It gives us a break. After Thanksgiving we can just relax for a week or so before we need to deck the halls and trim the shrubbery. *sigh* Just sit back. No pressure.

Given, we did download Relient K's new Christmas album Let It Snow Baby, Let It Reindeer" and have been laughing to the point of tears listening to "Good King Wenceslas." But, other than that, nothing.

Come this Saturday, though? Oh, boy. Get ready. It will be ON!

Yep, yep, yep.
I feel the same way especially when thanksgiving for me often streches the whole weekend and sometimes into the next week (LOTS of family obligations.) I prefer to stick to December and it's 25 days for Christmas celebrating.

(And I am so checking out the Relient K album!!)

Christmas for me this year went up waaay early, as in the day after Thanksgiving. I know, I know but I had to since my first Christmas party at my house was December 2nd!! All I need now is just the tree.
