Why I Decorate for Christmas Early

I know Halloween was just a couple days ago but me packing up my Halloween decor has got me itching to bring down my Christmas decor. It doesn't help my case that all the retail stores are blasting Christmas music and have their shelves fully stocked with all things Christmas.

I generally try to wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas but y'all it is taking everything in me this year to not bring it out this weekend. Something special about this time of year I just love. It's either all the twinkly lights scattered throughout our home, the beautiful glow from our Christmas tree, all the Christmas festivities, or just the magic of Christmas in my kiddos eyes. Maybe all of it!

I just want to enjoy this time of the year as long as I can. Especially because I am having to work all of the major holidays this year. Oh the joy of working in the medical field and in an ER at that. I have to work Thanksgiving night, Christmas night, and the night of New Years. So this just means I can't really enjoy these special days at 100%, so why not make it a little more enjoyable the days that I'm off for a little longer?

Michael will be out of town for a whole week deer hunting, so don't be surprised if I make a new post of all our Christmas decor in a couple of days!

When do you start decorating for Christmas?
