Christmas is My State of Mind.

I’ve read of stores who are taking the stand to not put out Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving. I applaud them for standing by what they feel is important. I used to make the same rule–none of the Christmas china or linens came out until the first week of December.

But this year I’m throwing rules out the window. I have already gotten out a festive Christmas tea mug and the napkins. I’m in the mood.

Frankly, I think the more Christmas the better at this point in my life, and in the world.

Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.-1
