Just yesterday I was celebrating Thanksgiving with the family and today we were singing Christmas carols in church and starting the season of Advent. What happened?!
In case you can't tell, I am not a person who puts up their Christmas tree in November. My method is to completely deny any knowledge of the impending holiday until at least the second week into December. Yes, yes, it is a bit hard with all of the Christmas music playing everywhere and the store decorations going up but still, somehow, I manage.
It doesn't help that the kids are actively counting down the number of days until Christmas. Every morning they seem to take great delight in
(puts fingers in ears)
I can't hear you....
La la la...
Fa la la la la
