Thanks so much for responding to my question. I was just thinking that it would be pure bliss to have someone as passionate about Christmas as I. My husband tolerates my listening to Christmas music year round although he does comment sometimes about the time of year. I have to admit, though, that when I was in a cast and using crutches, he did go out and buy a tabletop fiber-optic tree so I would not trip over a big tree. And he is keeping in mind where to put our tree when the back part of the house is remodled. At least he is not a complete humbug!
