As much as I love October--fall, football, Halloween, classic scary movies..I admitt to squeezing some Christmas into it.
Here and there I'll start taking CDs out and back into my car, watching some select movies, dusting off the train set and just "getting ready".
A few days after Nov 1 I do the "little tree". A small 4ft white tree with red balls.
Then of course the day after Thanksgiving the big guns come out and everything gets put together, the little tree stays out of course.
As far as I'm concerned Thanksgiving is just a part of my Christmas celebration!!
Now that I've found this place in April--I might have ta' chalk this up to starting the celebration even earlier!
