Everyone hates to mention it too soon, unless you are Canadian and have already had your Thanksgiving!
It's a beautiful, wonderful thing called Christmas.
I whispered it so maybe it won't cause too much, stress on anyone. I mean I do understand as I am still enjoying Autumn here. (My Cleveland Pear is starting to turn and its going to be gorgeous!)
The reason I am mentioning the C word, is two-fold.
1. If you do a lot of handmade gifts, you are already busy working on gifts. I know I am.
2. The local theaters have begun their Christmas shows!
You know that we have close ties with Sight and Sound Theaters .
There is another theater nearby that does their own Christmas shows, besides being a venue for groups that are making oldies tours, The Gaither Vocal Band, Loretta Lynn, and The Beach Boys all played there this summer.
Tonight, is the employee premier of The Miracle of Christmas, at Sight and Sound. We are blessed to be able to go because we have kids who work there.
This also means that the Christmas will have begun in my mind, and I am going to have to work hard to keep it in check until after Thanksgiving!
I'll try. Really I will. But I make no promises. Christmas talk may slip out here and there on the blog before the end of November.
I know you'll forgive me, as I have a lot going on with those two holidays, and Emma's wedding on December 29th.
