It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
But the prettiest sight you'll see,
Is the holly that will be on your own front door!
Okay, can I start getting excited yet?
I woke up yesterday with Christmas songs in my head, and subjected everyone in my car to festive tunes on the morning drive, and loved every second. I'm not sure my housemates did, but that's beside the point.
it's still only November and it's still pre-Thanksgiving (yes I celebrate Thanksgiving too, was born in the USA
) but I can't help but get excited. I went through a period a while back when everything was wrong, bad or up in the air, and I found it hard to get in the spirit of things, so now that I'm feeling excited all by myself, I feel like it's important to nurture that feeling, to help turn it into that magical time of year that I truly love so well. I actually put my tree up a few weeks ago for a bit of brightness in the otherwise fairly dark living room. I added a few decorations, but have been saving the majority of the decorating, probably one of my favourite things about Christmas, for a later/more acceptable time, which I've decided will be today!
So basically, I'm declaring today as the start of Christmas. Sorry all you Scrooges out there, but get ready for a whole lot of festive fun!
