I've always thought that I should wait until Thanksgiving is over so that we can appreciate the harvest decorations at our family gathering. My goal is to get the tree up the very next day though...I love having the tree up early so we can enjoy it every evening as we watch our favorite Christmas movies and I keep it up through the celebration of the Feast of the Three Kings- Epiphany. To me, it is still very much Christmas until then!
“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.”
― Laura Ingalls Wilder
