Is it just me, or is anyone else just dying to put up their Christmas tree and decorations!!! Nothing like having the tree lit, the fire going and the candles lit, watching a movie and snuggled on the couch!!..I am such a sucker for Christmas!!!
Me too! I think after everything that's happened this year we need it more than ever.
We get a real tree and I can't wait to go pick it out, I would love to have it up for 1 December but I think tomorrow two weeks will have to do. Getting a wreath today for the appt door and that will be up Nov 30 at midnight.
Am sorely tempted to put mine up next friday to coencide with the toy show!! Might just be able to hold off until the 3rd though.
I'm putting up a wreath this year too - I presume you can get a real one? Would it last for the Christmas?

If its in oasis and you keep the oasis moist it will. My mum makes a real one with stuff from the garden and it lasts the month, sometimes she replaces bits and keeps the leaves sprayed with water.

Thanks Lux. I love the idea of a real wreath & a big red bow on my green door! But that green oasis stuff reminds me of Art classes in school! Think I'll have to rethink.
I didnt know the late late toy show was on next week
Sorry, just realised I posted this twice,The doorbell went when I was posting the 1st one, didnt realise I actually sent it already and wrote another one...so apoligies!!
I think the reason I am so anxious to get the tree and decorations up every year, is because I work in retail and as a result work crazy hours over the Christmas, and then sale the day after St Stephans day, I just never get to sit in and enjoy them!! I want to put them up now!!!
Was just thinking the other day I can't wait to get the tree up. We were burning logs in our fire last week and one of them gave off a real Christmassy smell - it was so nice. We always get a real tree too - really looking forward to getting the house all festive!
Stupidsexyflanders, I love that smell too...real christmas scent!!!
