The Christmas season came and went last year without it actually ever feeling like Christmas. I had a hard time “getting into the season”. Christmas is my very favorite holiday (well that and Thanksgiving), so I’m taking every precaution to make sure I find myself full of holiday cheer from the very beginning. I decorated my office with peppermint twinkle lights, a mini tree, window clings and a festive candle. I hung stockings, wreaths, snowflakes… and decorated all of the side tables in my house. I did this all yesterday. A full week and a half prior to Thanksgiving – the official date for when Christmas decorations offically become acceptable. I say screw it, who made up those silly guidelines anyways?
