Friday Favourite: Christmas?

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.

    Oh my goodness! Love the peanuts nativity! Jealous that you went to the Santa Claus parade – that has been a childhood dream of mine for as long as I can remember!
