I fully agree with this meme that floats around every year. I do not like that we see Christmas everything beginning in October. I don't understand the rush. I like to savor each holiday as they come. That being said, the day after Thanksgiving is always dedicated to getting ready for Christmas in our house.
I dug all the tubs of Christmas décor out of storage and started decorating. I love the kokeshi nativity I picked up at a bazaar in Japan. I think it's my favorite decoration.
I finally made use of all the stickers the military movers stick to our packing boxes each time we move.
This year we decided to use the "big lights" that we've carried with us for years but never used and I'm in love with our tree this year.
We ended our night with a Big Bang Theory marathon and homemade turkey pot pies made with left over Thanksgiving turkey. The perfect transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas.
