Are you a Christmas baby ?!?!?

Quoting earthangel1967:

Not me not yet... I crazy love all the holidays but I like to totally focus on one at a time, I love to start thinking all christmassy the day after thanksgiving which is when I use to put my tree up and leave it up until new years day.


When we had to sell our big family house we raised the kids in this past year and downsize extremely, we donated all of our christmas decorations, large xmas treee everything to charity bc I have no room to store stuff like that in a 495 sq ft apt lol 


So we are probably going to go out on black friday and buy a small (easy to store) little tabletop xmas tree and that will be our only christmas decoration in our apt unless you want to count the Peppermint Twist christmas handsoap I got from Bath and Bodyworks. lol


Other than that we will still have our large family celebration and feast and game playing and my birthday party like we always do but we're doing it at one of our young adult kids houses bc there is more room

wreathhappy birthday Yes, Dec 25th I will turn 45. : ) No I never felt cheated my parents always gave me a birthday party and separate birthday gifts. (people ask me that all the time. : )

I have well over 100 cousins and they would often complain and get jealous (I dont blame them: ( .... bc my grandpa made such a HUGE big deal out of me being born on Christmas, the way he talked you would have thought I was the next best thing to baby jesus himself. HAHAHAHA  I miss my grandpa. : )

Michele. I knew you would be ready. Hehe I am not. Maybe in a few weeks. I have new furniture and rug coming for my living room. I want to enjoy it before breaking out the Christmas decorations.

 I don't decorate until after Thanksgiving .. I like to enjoy that holiday for itself.  The Christmas decorations will come up from the basement the Saturday after ... and start going up that weekend.  Dh & dd will put the tree up either Sat. or Sunday & I'll put the decorations on it probaby Monday or Tuesday and then do the rest of the house Wed & Thurs.  We no longer do the outside; although I do wish I could get dh to put the outside lights up.  But he puts in so much overtime this time of year he just is to tired by the time he gets home & on the weekends he is busy with other stuff.  He said maybe when he retires he'll start doing it again.

 Awww...I bet you do miss him...that is so special. I love that they all made a bigger deal of your birthday since Im sure all the excitement of Christmas might make the cousins a little present crazy...lol. And how awesome is it that you were born on Christmas?!?!?!?! I'll be 45 on my next birthday too!
