I am sorry if my previous post sounded a little 'Scrooge like'.
I am all for reducing the stress of the Christmas season by some advanced preparations....
I just won't decorate or pull out the Christmas music until Thanksgiving has passed.

I have ordered our fresh trees and have requested they don't get delivered until as close to the end of November as possible....but there are no guarantees.
I have also picked up some vintage Christmas items at the Goodwill this past month....
including a box of cards that I think I will incorporate into my decorating this year.

I am also working on a couple gifts....but I know my that list isn't very long this year.
I really won't be a "Scrooge".....once December rolls around.  :)

Oh yes. I'm with you. The day after Thanksgiving my granddaughter will be ehre and we'll dig out the crate of Christmas cds, deck the halls, and put up the outside decorations. I work on Christmas gifts very early in the year but nothing is 'out' til Thanksgiving is finished.
