One of my BFFs sent me this picture yesterday, and it got me thinking: when will you decorate for Christmas?
If you follow us on Facebook you’d know from my and my Mom’s Anniversary Sale shopping spree back in July that Nordstrom is my favoritest store of all time! (And for the record, I was just there with some BFFs for Girls Day Out on Saturday, so how did I miss this sign?) But anyway, we discussed when we should put up our Christmas trees. I mean we like to give proper respect and appreciation to Thanksgiving, yet we also like to be prepared for the “official” start of Christmas—the day after Turkey.
Traditionally we set up our main Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving, but I was considering decorating early this year… Hear me out:
Since I won’t be hosting Thanksgiving, we had been tinkering with the idea of putting up our main Christmas tree the weekend before. I mentioned yesterday that we just purchased a 12′ tree, which is 3′ taller than our old tree. I’m having a hard time deciphering exactly how many more ornaments I need to fill it. (Or should I start from scratch and buy all new decorations? Ahh, too many decisions!) So, I had mostly talked Clint into supporting early decorating UNTIL I saw this sign. I mean, when I saw that my trusted Nordstrom was holding back… I’m having second thoughts. If they can decorate in one day, surely I can, too, right?
So tell me Supermoms, when will you be decorating for Christmas?
