    With everything that happened last year, and then add COVID-19 for 2020, I've been broken down this year. I'm one of those that the Christmas season does start until after Thanksgiving. Each year we get our Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving. Then we are all in.

    Every year even before Halloween my wife and girls will put on Christmas music. My rule is not around me. Not this year. This year I've just accepted it. The way I figure it is that with everything that transpired with my dad in the second half of 2019 and COVID-19, I could use the good holiday cheer of Christmas. Plus I do love snow, winter, and Christmas.

    Call me crazy, but it's full-on. The cookies and Chex-mix have been baked once already. The music has been playing. Some decorations are out. No tree yet. Maybe this weekend.

    Happy Holidays even if it is early.

    A lot of people around here are putting up outside decorations already. It makes a dark time of year brighter.

    Took a walk with one of my boys last week and one neighbor was starting with his outdoor Christmas decorations.
    The house next to him had Thanksgiving deco, and the house next to that had Halloween. Should have taken a picture it was like walking through Lowe’s and the Home Depot. Lol

    Why does anyone need to be concerned with the timing of Christmas things? If you enjoy it, and you should, put the Christmas things where you can enjoy them. He whose Birthday we celebrate probably enjoys it too.
