Merry Christmas!!
What do you mean I'm a bit early? 

I saw my first Christmas tree set up in a home last night (rather than the stores - who have had Christmas trees up since Halloween.)

Current Mood: amused amused

That's not early! It's nearly a week after Thanksgiving. By American standards, that's rather late. The third Thursday in November or that weekend is the accepted norm.

Yes yes, we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto. Gotcha. :D

You have (had) your Christmas tree up for a month and a half? Are you not sick of the sight of it by the New Year?

I like the sparklies. Lights, glitter, shiny! Hurrah!

No, I'm not sick of it by NYE. I was always told it had to come down by the first week in January - something about wise men and tying it to the Christian mythos. However, it was generally a fight with my Mom to make sure it got taken down by my birthday. In February.

Although, it was generally me saying, "Mom, it's time. Put it away."

Mom would leave it up all year if she could. And yes, she did manage it one year. I wasn't living at home then. Thank goodness. I really WOULD have been sick of it. :D
