Countdown to Christmas 2007!!!

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN 2007

Start of the Christmas Season (November 13). Most of us have agreed that we look forward to the Christmas Season rather than just to Christmas Day. Why November 13? No reason, really. It just seems about the right time to regard the season as arriving. It is exactly 6 weeks before Christmas Day and is about the time the country at large is beginning to get into the holiday spirit. Most of the stores have decorated. And starting the season then gives us exactly 50 days (Nov 13 through Jan 1) to enjoy being "within" the season.

We also like to note "milestones" along the way such as the 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 marks. At 90% complete, we launch the "home stretch" as we coast into the final days before the season begins.

January 17 = Day 300
February 12 = 1/4 mark
March 15 = 1/3 mark
April 27 = Day 200
May 15 = 1/2 mark
July 14 = 2/3 mark
August 05 = Day 100
August 14 = 3/4 mark
October 07 = 90% (The Home Stretch begins)
November 13 = THE SEASON ARRIVES!


This was copied from something that our dear friend Crown84 posted. We're still hoping to see his/her happy, smiling face here! In the mean-time, I thought I might try and continue our friend's tradition!!!

I figure it to be about 112 days till the season begins!!! If this is incorrect, please let me know immediately!!!

We're well on the road and in good shape, all is right with the world!!!

Jump aboard guys...We have alot of work to do on this thread to eaqual the posts we had at it's former residence!~!

Jay

Back to school sales are underway now, so we're too close to the season to lose track now!

Thanks for kicking off the countdown, Jay!

I see 153 days until Christmas
And 111 to the season (so 112 yesterday sounds about right)
I've heard a whisper about decorating in 100 days.
That seems sooooooooo close.

I only have about six gifts (quite a bit of Scotch tape), three boxes of beautiful Christmas cards and some gift wrap.

I figure I have 112 days to get ready for Christmas.

Carl the camel - where are you?

Wow, you're good!!!! I thought I was doing all right until your post.. I'm going to have to get busy. But I go back to work on the 6th of August, and I'm throwing a vacation in there too! But my Christmas cards are done for the family and friends. Now I have to make 40 more for the new friends I have made here. I pretty much am done with the dinner planning, the gifts we'll buy on vacation. So, I'll get there....

I was thinking its Christmas in July tomorrow, the 25th. I'm excited!

I have one special card for my DH. I'm not sure how much new paper and cards I have, but I did get some more recently. Note to self; dig out tomorrow and see what, if anything, is needed.

I've got my 2007 Christmas Card mailing list started. I've spotted a gift for Kev aka DH. Not sure if I should get it for his b'day in September or hold onto it til Hard to believe we're 2/3 of the way there already.

I'm getting giddy!

My wife has been unpacking snowmen and other Christmas merchandise this afternoon. She will order more Christmas gift items at market toward the end of next month. Still, seeing the sculptures, decor, ornaments, etc. is exiting and enhances the Christmas mood and spirit!!! Have a great evening and Merry Christmas everyone!
