Creating Christmas Converts!!

My husband and I LOVE our next door neighbor. We both bought our houses and moved into them within a month of each other and we're around the same age. She's great. We bake/cook for each other constantly and take care of each other's pets. She takes care of my son a lot and he loves her.

Unfortunately, last year, our neighbor didn't decorate for Christmas.

I actually had to badger her into putting a wreath on her door. She just wasn't "feeling it" because of some personal things she was going through. This year has been a little rough for her as well, but we're friends, so we banded together as a support system and we've helped her through it. She's doing great now.

This year, we invited her to go to our town's Christmas tree lighting and to go get our Christmas tree. She happily agreed and she's excited about going to see our little boy pick out the tree! Because of all the giddy plans we've been making around her, she's super excited about Christmas this year! She claims its rubbed off on her and now we're in a race to see who's going to get their outside decor up first! We're thinking of letting her win just to increase her excitement!

We converted her into a fellow Christmas fanatic!!!! YAY!

ReineV, that story brought tears to my eyes! Not only for the sake of Christmas but just being a great neighbor in pulling her through tough times and making her happy again! You are a great person!

Great Work!
I didn't realize I said pretty much what you said! We think alike.
