There’s something you should know.
I love Christmas.
I don’t even try to hide it. I tried talking Josh into putting up our tree last week and he laughed at me. I love it because I love to decorate and bake and whatnot. But I also love Christmas because of what it is really for. Growing up, I loved doing the Nativity story and reading the “Legend of the Candy Cane”. It is still one of my favorite books and I will talk more about it in a later post. It was also the one time of year that I got to see my whole family. We are a pretty big group and when I was little I was always so excited to see everyone and spend a whole day with them. There was also really good food. I still get excited, but I haven’t gotten to go to Phillip’s Family Christmas since I started college. This will be the first time that I get to go in quite a few years! Christmas also gives me a lot of anxiety. Not knowing what’s right in front of me freaks me out. And waiting. I hate waiting. So much so that it makes me super jittery and almost sick to my stomach waiting for Christmas. Which is why my parents started the 12 days of Christmas. But more on that later.
I have a Christmas present for all of you.
Drum roll please!
Next week will start the Christmas Extravaganza Palooza!!!
I know it’s early to be starting it, but it’s almost the end of the semester. I have finals starting the week after Thanksgiving. That kinda frightens me, so I want to be on top of my game! I have lots of fun things planned that I can’t wait to share with you. Some will be repeats, some will be newbies. You will just have to wait and find out!
I’m just kidding! Here’s what you have to look forward to:
- Door decorations
- Snowflake Wreath – The very one I got stuck in…
- Tree skirt
- Snowflake Ornaments
- Big Giant Paper Snowflakes
- Wrapping Paper
- Popsicle Snowflakes
- Picture Frame
- Glitter Confetti
- AND SO MUCH MORE!!!
So please join me while I deck our apartment out in glitter and drive Josh nuts with Christmas music! 🙂
