It don't seem like much but it's a small step in bringing my Christmas things out early. Who knows what's next, the tree in October?
Is anyone else getting the urge to bring out their Christmas decorations now?
Yes I am Never to early to start putting out a little here and there...we are practically there already only 76 days...make the most of it that you can.
I'm trying really hard to resist until after Thanksgiving. The boxes will likely come out in the second week of November. Luckily, I have a lot on my plate until then, so it's a little easier for me than usual to resist.
