Anyone else cheating and skipping ahead to Christmas?
 
Each year I kind of start sneaking in the start of my festivities a little earlier. I've begun listening to Christmas carols and I think will start watching specials after Halloween, beginning with my 2 transitional movies: Gremlins and The Nightmare Before Christmas. It really dawned on me this year that Chistmas gets kind of shafted being so close to Thanksgiving, we only get 3-4 weeks of merriment before it's over.

I've been "cheating" with music on my commute for quite a while now, and with some Christmas movies and programs during Christmas in July. After Halloween, the entire Christmas library will be "open"---music, movies, and books.

Yes! I just can't help myself! I have a Christmas cd in my truck that I listen to now when I'm driving. It helps me to relax a bit. :treeguy:

I must cheat all year, as I always have at least a dozen songs on my media player all year, and watch at least one Christmas film a month all year round.

Oh yes! I've been playing my Christmas playlist on my phone when in the car for the last few weeks. I plan to start watching my Christmas movies this weekend!

:snowball:I've watched a few Christmas movies, and have been listening to Christmas music.

I haven't done too much cheating yet. I watched a truly horrible Christmas movie called Surviving Christmas and I play some Andy Williams here or there.

I'm waiting until November 1st to go all out.

I listen to music and watch Christmas movies all year long. My decor will go up the first week if November. I kinda wrap thanksgiving & Christmas all together. So, it's a full 8 weeks of enjoyment!

Me too!!! Some people tell me that is not giving Thanksgiving it's proper respect, but I LOVE Thanksgiving. I call the whole season "The Holidays" - the entire 8 weeks (or more) are about family, friends, togetherness, & being thankful! So I might have my tree up before Thanksgiving....who does that hurt??? NOBODY! It just adds to the merriment in my mind!!! :D

:razz:
