…….well, not really me – it’s my house! It’s a difficult decision – when to decorate for Christmas. In the grand scheme of things – poverty, wars, the status of the world, etc., notwithstanding – it isn’t all that difficult! But in the Linda world, it is! Let me explain: for the past almost 20 years I’ve had a Cookie Swap party for friends and family the first weekend in December so I usually decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. This year I got a jump start and started bringing down the little trees last weekend. This past weekend I put up the big tree in the living room and dining room. So, while you see this:

I know, I know – my Mama taught me better! I hear all the ranting about jumping from Halloween to Christmas – what happens to poor Thanksgiving!?! In my defense, we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving at my house, we do that somewhere else, so it doesn’t really matter if it’s decorated or not. Working all week just gives me the weekend to decorate, thus, I need the extra time.
So, I’ll just happily decorate as I please. If you’ll notice, when I said I put up the trees, I DID NOT say that I decorated them! Me and my home will just go ahead another week or so with pumpkins and straw outside while decking the halls inside! Having a split personality isn’t the worst thing in the world, is it!?
