I can’t believe another week has gone by! Seriously, November is coming to an end, and I am already starting to feel the Christmas Panic. This week for #3ThingsThursday I am sharing three reasons why I am starting to feel a little Christmas frantic. If you would like to share three things on Thursdays you can link up with The Write Balance, Love, Laugh, Mirch, or Pink Chai Living and play along.
Ok. You’re probably thinking who cares, it’s still November right? Well, November is actually almost over, which means December 01st is right around the corner, which means 24 DAYS until Christmas folks!! Yup, only 24 days. Another reason, I feel this Christmas urgency is because when I drive down my block, I can see decorated Christmas trees in the windows of lots of homes AND they even have Christmas lights up on their houses. Perhaps, I also feel this frantic because Christmas stuff has been up in the stores since Halloween, and Halloween didn’t actually feel that long ago. I recall thinking, man it’s only Halloween, I’ve got lots of time for Christmas. However, now I’m thinking s***! Christmas is in a month!
2. I haven’t bought a thing
Normally, I’ve at least purchased two or three Christmas presents for the kiddos by now and stashed them away from the kids, but this month, not a damn thing! Needless to say, I should start my shopping before the shopping rush begins, before the kids are out of school for the holidays, and especially before I turn into the Grinch at the mall!
3. My decorations aren’t up
I urgently want to get my decorations up so that this stupid urgent feeling will go away! That’s right, I want to set up the tree with the kids, listen to some Taylor Swift Christmas, and sip on some coffee and Baileys, with the fake fire on the television screen of course. I have craved this day, because once that is complete, our home will feel like Christmas. Once the home feels like Christmas, I’m hoping my urgent, panicky, I have to get my Christmas stuff done, will go away. Well, that’s my hope anyways. Should I just have the coffee and Baileys now? 😉
Thanks for reading my #3ThingsThursday rant about my three reasons I’m in a Christmas panic.
PS. I’m heading to the basement to grab the Christmas decorations!!!
