|Last year with the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center in NYC|
My heart skipped a beat... only 50 days!? That's it!? That's all we have between now and Christmas!?
This wasn't concern because I don't have enough time to put up the tree, bake holiday cookies, shop for gifts, etc. No, this was concern that I don't have enough time to enjoy Christmas.
You see, Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. Well, if we're being honest, a lot of them are my favorites, especially the 4th of July and my Birthday, which is a national celebration as far as I'm concerned.
But there's something magical about Christmas -- the twinkling lights, the carols, the cheer & merriment, the baked goods, and more!
It's honestly my favorite time of year (though I don't enjoy cold weather), and, quite frankly, I feel like I don't get enough time to enjoy it.
If I had my way, I'd start celebrating Nov. 1, right after Halloween. But there's another holiday standing between me and Christmas, and that's Thanksgiving.

But sometimes I feel like Thanksgiving is a lunch break between Halloween and Christmas.
People don't take to fondly to this notion though. Every year, I swear I hear more and more people complaining that "Christmas is coming earlier and earlier every year!"
Secretly I'm jumping for joy inside.
I saw the first Christmas display the last week of September this year and fist pumped.
I decided where the Christmas tree was going to be displayed in our new apartment this year back in October.

Out of respect for Thanksgiving, I'll refrain from external Christmas revelry for now, but I may start secretly listening to Christmas music when no one's around.
And I may put the tree the day after Thanksgiving.
But you know what, that's OK with me. Sometimes we need a little extra Christmas cheer!
What do you think about the holidays? Are you with me or do you think Christmas goes overboard? Tell me in the comments below!
