I refuse to embrace Christmas until December 1. To be honest I really struggle to embrace Christmas at all until Christmas Eve. Somehow Christmas Eve draws me in although it isn’t usually until we go to church at night. (Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas but all the politics and commercialism of it just annoys me.) As soon as the lights go dim at the church on Christmas Eve and the beautiful Christmas music starts, I am suddenly fully on board with Christmas. Until then, I pretend.
December 1 is the day we decorate for Christmas. When the girls get home from school today we will pull out the decorations, turn on the Christmas music and embrace the Season.
When do you decorate for Christmas?
