Catching the Christmas Spirit

Some years it takes me a while to get the Christmas Spirit.  It really irritates me that stores try to rush the season with their displays in October.  And July if you go to craft stores.  I'm just not ready.  I want to enjoy Fall and Thanksgiving.  I'm trying to ease myself into it this year.  (I'm listening to Christmas music while I blog.  That totally helps me.)  I was looking through a catalog about a week ago and saw a nativity statue I liked.  I mentioned it to Mickey, and him being the wonderful husband that he is, ordered it as a surprise for me.  It's been sitting on the kitchen table since it got here.  (Until the photo shoot, that is.)


How do you get into the Christmas Spirit?

I too fight it until after Thanksgiving. Every year it keeps getting earlier (sigh), but that's the retail business for you. Always trying to get your hard earned cash. It wouldn't bother me so much if they were really trying to promote the "Spirit of Christmas" as I love that about this time of year. I tried to ease into it this year by buying a yard decoration last week. I wanted to get it last year, but by the time I got around too it ... I couldn't find any, so I found it last Monday and bought it. Merry Christmas To All !
