The best Christmas trees
come very close to exceeding nature.
This evening I went for a stroll around my town. While in many ways I’m holding on to Halloween (and will carry it in my heart all year long), I’m starting to get a little ting of the Christmas Spirit and my town isn’t discouraging it at all!
Look at us with our Christmas tree already up and lit; look at the promises that the town is going to look like a postcard (not sure where they’re going to find the snow :p).
Tonight many of the houses in town appeared to be giving their lights and Christmas decorations a test drive.
Look…we really can’t judge. We were shopping for Halloween in July and our hearts are big enough for multiple holidays. Plus, for many of us Halloween is a lifestyle choice. Christmas, to me, is the most magical time of year.
I’m obsessed with Christmas movies. I watched two Hallmark Channel Christmas movies last night.
My very favorite movie is It’s a Wonderful Life. Those who know me know that I cry even talking about it. I lovelovelove all things Bing Crosby! White Christmas! Holiday Inn! I own them; I go to the classic movie showings at the local theaters; I go to see the play versions when they’re available. Swoon!
Last Saturday night, I was at the mall and ended up meeting one of my friends who adores Christmas. In Crate & Barrel and in Pottery Barn, he bought Christmas ornaments; I bought the leftover Halloween items.
My love for Peppermint Mochas even surpasses my love for Pumpkin Spice lattes. But, of course, I write this while I’m eating a pumpkin spice cookie, a batch that I made for my fella tonight. I've got a case of the in-betweens!
Kids, we gotta keep Halloween in our hearts all year long!
Merry Everything! I’m ready :)
