Tomorrow the "30 Days of Thanksgiving" is starting. If you're just joining us this year you may not know that I've had a strict rule in my house over the years -- we celebrate every holiday, in order. That means, no Christmas decorations or music is allowed until the day after Thanksgiving. I've had to make a concession in years past for music because to put on a Christmas musical (especially "The Messiah" like we did last year) we have to start practicing in at least October. So we've already been singing Christmas music & listening to it in the car for a few weeks. But this year there are a few other changes.
1. Our Christmas tree is already set up. If you read about Jordy's birthday party you know why. It's not decorated for Christmas right now so I guess it's officially a Halloween tree right now. Next week it's going to become a Thanksgiving tree.
2. Since I have a space in a local shop that has themes every month and the theme for November is "Christmas," and I have to create what I'm going to sell now, I am already making Christmas decorations. I may show you one from time to time, but my blog won't be too Christmasy until after Thanksgiving.
3. Again this year, everyone who receives a Christmas gift from me is getting something homemade. So I better stop blogging and go start crocheting!
Those are all the exceptions I have so far. Maybe I won't have to add any more this year.
Oops, I just realized that I'm starting the "30 Days of Thanksgiving" before Halloween. Oh, well...
