On November 28th, the day after Thanksgiving, I bought my tree, lights, a wreath, and began my Christmas shopping. Normally none of this happens until December 1st or later (usually later). I can only take so much Christmas Spirit. I don’t know if I am missing home, or just trying to fit in as much Christmas before I leave on my trip (more on that later), but I am in full Christmas mode.
Fitting a fake tree, presents, lights, and the lot of Christmas décor into a shoe box of a studio apartment has been a challenge, but worth the effort. I’m not sure about you, but the best part of Christmas for me is late night wrapping and listening to my Pandora Christmas station. It can be a stressful time of year, with parties coming up, travel plans, Christmas shopping, and the list goes on, so it’s been important for me to just enjoy the little things. Next week I will be posting some of my tips for surviving and enjoying the holiday season.
