I always think November is my favourite month then December the 1st arrives and I am like ‘oh wait no December is my favourite’ . True to form its happened again this month. I also heard on the radio the 1st December being refereed to as tree day, you know ‘put up your Christmas tree day’. I can’t decide if to put mine up today or not. A quick ask on Facebook last night had mixed results.
I asked who is putting their tree up on the 1st?
Six replied no way, 12 days before or a week before. Oh and one on Christmas Eve.
Four replied already done (…ekkk)
And then there were a four saying yes to putting their tree up on the 1st.
This tells me a lot of my friends are just big excited kids like me. For me I love sitting there looking at the sparkly tree as I go about my work. It reminds me of the magic and glitter of Christmas. Yes I know there is no actual real magic and all that but I do think we create our own magic. They say if you smile it fools yourself into thinking you are happier then actually might be. So with that in mind at the grand age of 40+ and with children well into their teens and no whiff of believing in Father Christmas or such like – I believe in the magic of it all because I make myself believe it.
So when do you put your tree up ?
