Decorating It All Up

When do you put your decorations up?

christmas meme from susan


The day after Thanksgiving. That’s one of our family traditions. With emphasis on the family, mom. It’s not about the decorations: it’s about the love shared throughout this season. Let others show us “what Thanksgiving is all about” by lining up at Walmart at 3am to stampede their separate ways fighting the crowds for those discounts they’d like Christmas to be about. We’re here spending the day with each other launching a season of spending time together.

We start putting it all back up in the closet and the garage the day after Christmas. Today we’ll be taking down the living room tree. (Tell me, if the raw commercialism of Black Friday’s stampedes for those early holiday discounts is what Thanksgiving is all about, then those malls crowded this past week with shoppers doing their gift exchanges to get what they really wanted, is that what Christmas is all about?)
