I’ll be the first to admit, I’m ready to decorate. It’s sort of like Brussel sprouts…you love ’em or hate ’em. November is either reserved for Autumn, or a springboard for Christmas. I have so many decorations, I usually begin decorating the second week of November. And because I want it all down on December 27th, I try to milk it as long as I can. I have a group of mixed feelings from my kids. My daughter refuses to listen to my ‘Jingle Bells’ in the car, stuffing headphones in her ears. And when I watch a Christmas movie in the kitchen while cooking, she gives me a ‘what for’.
So with all that in mind, I’m clearly an early Christmas celebrator. Although while doing a week of fundraiser things and having on the Hallmark channel every minute of it, I’m sort of sick of seeing the snow and going along with the characters to pick out a tree. And I don’t want to be sick of it. I’m taking a slight break so I can smell the coffee beans and resume my ho-ho-ho in the few weeks to come.
And so a small rant before I turn the channel…why do all the guys have to have the name Nick and all the girls carry the name Holly. Really? Seriously, 4 out of 5 movies have this setup. And you can guess that any guy that shows up during the first 15 minutes of the movie isn’t the one who’ll be ending it. This guy is the one who turns out to be a schmuck by not being there for the girl, not understanding her, or choosing their career over love. It’s so obvious. Yet I still stay tuned. It’s mindless entertainment. It’s chicken noodle soup for the Christmas soul. One bowl in which I need to take a little break from!
Have a great week everyone!!
