How early is to early??
Since when did Thanksgiving become a non-existent holiday? Don't get me wrong, I like Christmas, I don’t LOVE Christmas I think my love of commercial Christmas is what causes me to groan every time I hear about Christmas or see Christmas decor out and about.
The tip of the iceberg is to know that they are already releasing the ‘Black Friday” Ads. Seriously?? I am super annoyed by this and I can’t quite put my finger on it.
Christmas here is different than most families and I do get a bit of shock, calling me silly, but it is okay. This is how we prefer it, It make our boys learn that Christmas isn’t about what you get. It is getting to see the look on the face of the person who you gave something to.
We don’t open presents first thing Christmas morning. Usually its about 2:00 pm that we open gifts. We spend our day eating, laughing, with family. We have LOTS of family that comes to see us and share in this special day with us.
When did Christmas become about besting the next person? Am I think only one who thinks this way?
What are your thoughts?
