Hello, my name is John and I'm from Virginia Beach, Virginia. I first started getting back into the season about middle of May when I was going through a closet and found a pile of Christmas cards at the top shelf and when I went to go reach for them well they came tumbling down and hitting me repeatedly on the head and I knew that was a sign. I've always liked Christmas no matter what time of the year but that event made me realize it was coming in fast and to be ready! My plans this year is to start planning light arrangements after Halloween put them up the week of Thanksgiving along with the inside decorations of course then turn them on the day of Thanksgiving so my friends and family can see the festive lights. Other than the light and decoration arrangements I'm still in the planning stages and hoping to start making a list of what to get for friends and family. Also what to cook every weekend for the parties and gatherings that my family has every year and what to bring to other peoples houses when invited of course.
Other than that I'm glad I found this site and I hope to get to know you all better as the season steadily approaches.
Thanks and God Bless,
Greetings and Happy Holidays from Virginia Beach, Virginia USA
Welcome John, and thank heavens for the (full) closets....
I have the ideas but I have to do the decorating myself as my spouse isn't a Christmas person (yet). He's learning to be (again). After years in the service, his Christmas spirit had left, but slowly it's coming back. I don't have much to decorate the outside, but the inside is decorated to the nines.
