The Christmas Creep
I was reading today about how stressful it is for a blogger to have to remove Thanksgiving decorations before Thanksgiving arrives to photograph Christmas (here). She was somewhat lamenting about the Christmas Creep. A necessary evil. And I agree with her!
But, for the record, as a reader.....I love the Christmas creep!
Weeks before the late November Thanksgiving celebrations have arrived, Christmas posts begin to appear. It seems that once Halloween has passed, it's open season.
|Last year I had pink poinsettias!|
I have to say, after pumpkins and orange and brown for the past couple of months I don't blame them. I'm tired of the Autumn decorations! I'm getting very tired of my own Autumn banner!
By the time Thanksgiving looms up, my attention has definitely lagged.
So, I'm now eagerly clicking on the Christmas craft posts and reading about Santas, Snowmen and Nutcrackers.
At least it isn't three months of Rudolph and We Three Kings. Really, it's two months max.
I know for sure the fall posts started when schools began to open in mid August. I complained on my blog about that. (See my post of Sept 3rd) I was not ready at all and felt the seasons should be revamped.
So let the bells jingle in mid November and the decorated trees revolve in store windows! I am sooooo ready!
Don't worry....I'm still going to enjoy my Family Thanksgiving
and we'll have fall leaves, pumpkins and pilgrims on the table.
And I will enjoy them all Thanksgiving weekend, because I do not even think about decorating in my own home until after Dec 1st!
