Sense of Season

Yes, I'm one of "Those" people.  I get the itch to put the tree up as early as November 1st!  The combination of cooler weather, twinkling lights, comfort foods, boots, scarves and the urge to cozy up indoors, prompt me to cue up the Christmas music and get out the decorations. 

My plan was to get everything set up on Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't wait- so the Saturday before, it was. (No shame here). Thanksgiving Day was all the more pleasant when guests arrived to an adorned tree, stockings and even a couple of wrapped gifts.

In my opinion, the holiday scramble takes away from the magic of the season, so I try to do everything as early as possible. The reward comes at the end of each day leading up to Christmas, when I light the tree, sit down with a glass of wine, cider, or cocoa and listen to Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole or Harry Connick, Jr. belt out the classic carols I remember from childhood.
