Christmas begins with you

Christmas puzzle

Some people I know consider it poor taste to start Christmas decorating before December, but I don’t agree. I pretty much start preparing for Christmas as soon as Halloween is over. There are two main reasons; one practical and one emotional.

In October the sun shines only about 9 hours a day here in Gothenburg, so most of the time it’s completely dark. And we only see less and less light until mid-December. I find that Christmas decorations do the best job of compensating for the increasing darkness.

The other reason is simply that I enjoy Christmas so much, I want to extend it as much as possible. To save all the celebrating for just one or a few days just seems like such a waste of joy.

However, I’m far from done with my preparations. In fact, I haven’t even decided whether to go for a real Christmas tree or a plastic one. Although, I am leaning towards a nice plastic tree. It just seems so much more practical, considering all the running around that goes on in my house these days.

    Good to hear from you!
    That puzzle is so cute with the pieces shaped like reindeer. Do you have a website where I can order one?
