    Florida is lovely!

    I love the season but truly, I’d be happy if snow started December 20th and ended January 2nd. Heavy snowfall would be nice Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

    For me the season starts when the schools start and when Strictly come dancing starts. It helps when the weather turns to autunm with strong winds and grey days.
    When Mr W said it's all year round i peaked behind me to look at my autunm tree. I have my tree up all year round and change the them/decorations according the season.

    It's funny (not really funny more peculiar) how people feel free to judge online. It's almost the screen filters social behavior. I sometimes ask people what they are judged for online and what they think about it when it happens. The funny thing is most poeple reply the same, they don't like it but everybody does it. And that i think is the strangest thing to say. For someone else doing something does not make it okay.
    All i can add is i'm happy with MMC and a place where i can share my love for the season all year round!-mistletoe-

    I love Christmas and think about Christmas year round but I always say that I celebrate during the "-er" months, so Christmas for me really starts in September. September is when I decide to jump out of the Christmas closet and be open and proud of my Christmas love (even though I'm met with a lot of eye rolls).

    It really started for me in September this year too. I was just in the mood for some Christmas music and cheer, and so I thought why not? I can listen whenever I want! :)

    ART thats an excellent post, whenever im feeling a little less jovial than i would like , i tend to either have a bath whilst listening to Christmas Tunes or do a bit of Cooking again whilst listening to Christmas tunes and those people that at first perhaps question my sanity about listening to Festive tunes whilst its Summer for instance normally cant argue when i tell them my reasons I do what I do all year round

    As soon as I start to see the least little bit of Christmas in stores, I get excited. That happened so late this year, that I'm really surprised. My Dollar Tree actually just put out there stuff about 2 weeks ago, which is super late for them.

    It really starts for me when the nights get cooler, the leaves start falling and the stores start putting out Fall and Halloween merchandise.

    I think I'm about to get excited for Christmas in July! But then the excitement will wane I bit and pick up again when the air starts to get chilly, the days shorter, and the leaves begin to turn

    I'm looking forward to Christmas in July as well. This year more so then ever. I'll have open heart surgery in August and with the focus on some Christmas cheer it will help not to drown in my anxiety. You all help me through this period even when i can't come online.:shakeit
