my holiday rules

I have strict rules when it comes to the holidays.

Rule #1: The Christmas season starts after Thanksgiving. Before Thanksgiving I will not acknowledge that Christmas is approaching. No decorations, no jolly jingles, no shopping for gifts. 25 days is plenty to get me in the spirit. I am a scrooge.

Rule #2: When Thanksgiving has come and gone, its time. To kick of my holiday cheer I must listen to one important song. And then the rest of the album many times on repeat. But every year the first time I hear this song it makes me absolutely giddy.

So Sunday I had the honorary playing-of-Sarah-song time. And the holidays have arrived! Any similar traditions?

Oh love that song, thanks for clip.

Oh that is so cute that you don't acknowledge Christmas till after Thanksgiving, very strong of you!

Thank you!!! I'm very particular about Christmas being AFTER Thanksgiving! Apparently, everything (everything being Christmas decorations & my Charlie Brown Christmas Tree) gets picked over at the stores after Thanksgiving.

I'm pretty sure that if I didn't watch any Christmas movies around Christmas time, that not only would I not understand Christmas but it may not come at all.
Tradition, oh yeah.

That's a good song.
