My wife and I both enjoy Christmas. I leave decorations up for months, even the tree. It has to start to look like spring before I will take it all down. (I know the neighbors are glad to see the lighted reindeer go! lol)
But I'm ready for Christmas! I love the lights and the sounds and the songs. SO I'm ready to put them up now. But to do that presents two problems;
(1) I will have to use a fake tree again and we've talked about having a live one this year
(2) I don't have anything bought and wrapped to put under the tree yet.
To answer another question, I do know the real reason for Christmas. And we always make it our focus. But we celebrate Christ all year. I'm not just happy for him one month a year. We love him the other 11 too!
What are your christmas habits? When you do put up/tear down at your house? I would like to hear from others about when they decide to decorate and tear down and why? Is there a special reason, or perhaps you've just always done it this way?
And most of all, just celebrate Christ every day!
God bless you all!
