I live near a huge housing estate and often walk through as a short cut and I see lots of twinkly lights in the windows. Whats up!
Is it because the shops are starting to sell lights etc now, that people just cant help buying them or are we all to bored with life that we just want to move on to the next bit of excitement that comes along.
One of the saddest things I saw a few years ago was a young housewife who had her tree decorated, stockings filled and presents under the tree all by mid November. I asked her if she was organised for Christmas and she said yes, presents had been bought by October, wrapped and were on display. She had two young children and I wondered what they thought, would they find it hard to believe in father Christmas or were they non believing, would it be hard to contain their curiosity about what was in the parcels so long before the big day. I came to the conclusion that the mother was so bored with life that she just had to do something. Would she be looking for easter eggs in January-probably.
I don't much like Christmas but I will do what I have to for my DGD, tree, decs etc. but it never takes over my life. Are others like me or are you all so organised that its all done by November.
