So the turkey’s done.
Or at least the rest of it’s tucked into the freezer for later use.
Some local radio stations have turned to “all holiday music, all the time.”
Holiday lights are going up on houses.
Actually, some holiday lights were up right after Halloween near me.
(That’s called jumping the gun WAY too soon!)
Although I do enjoy seeing who goes all out in lighting up their neighborhoods, even though I don’t decorate anymore.
Some of us are in the midst of the beginning of the Christmas and Hanukkah rush, this year dealing with supply chain issues. Have you been Amazoning all year, or are you Small Business shopping to give local stores your business? Are you starting to plan dinners and parties for those family members you haven’t seen in quite some time?
Wrapping paper, ribbons, trees, decorations. Thinking of those we’ve lost, those less fortunate than ourselves and donating to causes dear to you.
It’s a time of remembrance, of hopeful joy for the future, of kids’ eyes lighting up to see what Santa has brought them on Christmas Day, of safely gathering with friends and families and enjoying hugs all around.
What are your plans for the end of this year? And what are you planning to put on your tables this year during this month-long holiday?
