Gettin’ in the Christmas Spirit

It’s only December 9th and the Christmas spirit is out in full force at the Jeisel- Martinson abode! The tree is decorated, the stockings are hung and the Annual White Elephant Gift Exchange has already come and gone.

This year, due to friends’ travel plans and busy schedules, we opted to throw our annual friends holiday gift exchange a little early. That forced us to decorate the tree and get the house Christmas-ready by the first weekend of December. The party was a success – champagne punch delivers every time – and now we’re left with a lovely Christmas-y home to enjoy!


It seems to me that there are two schools of thought when it comes to decorating for Christmas. There are those that have the boxes down from the attic and ready to go the day after Thanksgiving. I believe those are also the same folks that listen to Christmas music for four weeks in a row.  And, then there are the folks, like my parents, who barely get the tree up by Christmas Eve, but like to keep it around until Martin Luther King Day!

I was a bit apprehensive about dragging out the Christmas decorations on Thanksgiving weekend, but I’m starting to think that I will be a Thanksgiving-Christmas tree convert.  The Christmas season is fairly confined, nicely tucked between Turkey Day and New Years Eve. So why not enjoy not enjoy the full season with all trimmings! Just as long as I don’t’ have to listen to Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer for entire month!
