If you’re like me, you’ve been attempting to delay the Christmas convivialities in your home until after Thanksgiving. It’s my personal preference to let Thanksgiving have November and then give Christmas a nice, concentrated month of excitement afterward. Maybe it’s just that I’m tired. I don’t have the endurance to enjoy something for two whole months.
My children, however, weren’t able to keep from noticing that every store was stocked with ornaments and bows the day after Halloween (some of them before!). And despite all my efforts to suppress their early-onset anticipation, they will not be hindered. They spent a good hour yesterday writing and illustrating their rather ambitious Christmas list. It made me laugh, so I thought I’d share.
