Yes, it starts earlier every year, but I don't mind. Thanksgiving was never that big a deal to me or my family. Our big thing was Christmas. My Mom is obsessed with it--the food, the tree, the decorations--everything, which might be a bit strange, because we aren't religious. We just love it. I put my little tree---our first Christmas in our new house. I wanted to get everything done before Hubby's friends came over this weekend for Friendsgiving. Poor old fake tree is rather the worse for wear after all these years. Took me all day but I got it decorated. Didn't use garland or ribbon because I just didn't feel like it. Got the Doctor Who wreath on the door and the stockings up. Now I just need to figure out about putting some lights up in the yard or something. I would like to put lights on my house but hubby won't have it. So, show us your Christmas stuff! A tree, lights on your house, a wreath, whatever.
