So who here is in the holiday mood? I am starting to feel it more today. My radio station is not working via internet today so I am listening to another station that does live internet feed and it is already playing all Christmas all the time. So it is putting me in the mood. Plus Sunday I go get my Christmas Layaway out at Wal-mart so that helps me some.
I am ready to put my tree up but not until we get back from Tenn.
Plus we are going down South for Thanksgiving and my cousin down there just sent me a note and asked me to go shopping with her on Friday after Thanksgiving so that should be tons of fun. I have not seen her in 7 yrs we use to be really close when I was younger. So it will be fun. Richand and the kids are going to stay at my uncles house for the day and hang out with cousins 2 girls and Aunt and Uncle. Unless Aunt goes shopping with us which she probably will.
So who is in the holiday mood?
I am. I don't usually get it this early. But this year as soon as Halloween was over, I wanted to put some Christmas decorations up. Not quite ready for the tree though.
I'm having the hardest time getting in the holiday mood. It's been SUPER warm the past week. Before that it was cold and I was feeling like the holidays were on the way. Now it's so warm Our radio station is already doing Christmas around the clock, so that helps. It just seems strange to be driving around with the AC on and listening to Christmas carols, lol.
I am more in the Christmas spirit this year than ever. I am not really sure what it is. I couldn't wait for Halloween to be over, so I could validate it a little more! LOL! I was ready to put the Christmas tree up last weekend, and we never put it up till Thanksgiving break.
We bought some more Christmas lights to go outside, and I bought some cute jingle bells to decorate with.
I stopped at the local dollar store to run in and pick something up quickly. I never go in there, but I didn't feel like going in a big store. They had so many cute decorations in a snowman motif that I just loved! I bought a new coffee mug, a plush snowman door hanger, and a couple of the cutest snowman ornaments that are blown glass. Each thing was a dollar, and the ornaments were two for a dollar! They have a large serving tray and a serving bowl that I want, too, but for some silly reason I didn't buy it. Now I regret it! I just love decorating for Christmas, and I love snowmen!
We're going to put our tree up this weekend! I'm so excited!
I'm with Breann. Short sleeves and shorts were the dress of the day here! I know Thanksgiving is a short three weeks away, but I don't feel in the mood for the holidays. Still have my Halloween stuff out, lol. Must be the weather.:-)
Have fun this weekend, Adena! Maybe if you post a photo of your pretty tree some of your mood will rub off me.:-) Do you get snow your way?
I'll have to do that! Yes, we get snow here. I live in SW Virginia, near the KY border. We've actually had a couple days of snowflakes here already, but nothing that stuck when it hit the ground. It melted immediately. But it sure was pretty to look at! Maybe that's why I am already in the Holiday spirit!
No snow here--Florida. I am 100% in the holiday mood. Tree is up. Gifts are wrapped. House smells yummy. This is my favorite time of the year!
No snow. It's been pretty nice, for November, in WI. There is a local DJ, who is on in the evening, and she's been playing Christmas songs, so if we are out and about, we listen to her! LOL! Sarah's been in a Christmas mood, for a long time already.
I have a snowman candle holder, that never got put away last year. Well, now I think it looks so cute on my table! LOL!
I've been trying not to get into the spirit yet. It's more than a month away! First I have my ds's birthday party to think about, than Thanksgiving, than I can think about Christmas.
I'm thinking of putting up the tree the Sunday after Thanksgiving this year. We usually wait til at least the first weekend of December, but i figure that I should get my money's worth of my new artificial tree we bought last year!
