Yesterday I asked Ross to get the Christmas boxes out of the attic because I wanted to start decorating today. He refused. "It's not even Thanksgiving yet! I'll get them down for you that night."
While I would agree with him most years on this basic Thanksgiving before Christmas principal, this year is different. Because there is less than a month between Thanksgiving and Christmas. And we have a kiddo who needs to start experiencing Christmas. And because it is bloody cold outside.
Alas, he stuck to his guns. But then, so did I.
And I have Christmas candles lit and music blaring from Pandora on the surround sound.
I will have my Christmas season for a full month. Starting today.
