I have a firm “no Christmas activity until December 1″ rule.* I don’t even listen to Christmas music until December 23. Everything has changed this year… I have no idea what has gotten into me.
It all started last weekend when I agreed to attend the Santa Claus parade. I came home inspired to complete my Christmas card list. After that, I dug out my box of Christmas decorations. I had no intention of decorating yet but decided to dig out the box to be ready for when December rolls around. Very innocently, I opened it up to look at the decorations. Next thing I knew, my apartment was decorated for Christmas…. 2 weeks before December even began!
Now there seems to be no stopping me. Yesterday I bought Voortman Christmas cookies (another thing I usually would save for December). Today I stopped to buy cleaning supplies at Canadian Tire and found myself wandering the Christmas aisles, admiring all the decorations. Not only that, I bought something! And voila, this week’s Friday favourite. It’s so cute that I may have to start decorating in November every year. Seriously, what has gotten into me?!?
*I should note that the “not before December 1″ rule does not apply to Christmas shopping. I like to have that done by the end of October to avoid the Christmas pandemonium at the mall. You may now proceed to leaving comments accusing me of being Scrooge.
