I’ve been trying to talk Dean into getting a Christmas tree early and he keeps turning me down.
“Wait until Saturday,” he says.
“It’s not even Thanksgiving yet,” he says.
“Why are you so impatient?” he says.
I guess he’s right with that last one- I’m definitely NOT patient. (It’s a virtue I’m working on. Namaste.) But I’m hoping that he takes a minute to read this, because I came up with this list just for him.
I need a we all need a Christmas tree early:
- Nature doesn’t live in our house often. I just want at least one solid month with a tree in my house. (Bonus points that it doesn’t have a long term commitment as I’m a horrible plant mom.)
- Trees are expensive! Having it up for less than one month makes my wallet sad.
- We can’t even really appreciate the tree the wholeeee week before Christmas as we will be traveling. Womp. Womp.
- I’m currently in the middle of Christmas shopping and I have nowhere to keep the presents! I would like to put them under a nice tree in the living room 🙂
- It’s getting cold and it will only be colder. Tree hunting seems much more feasible in 30 degree sun rather than the cold and snowy days that are in our future.
- I consider Thanksgiving to be a part of the entire holiday season. Doesn’t it feel left out without decorations and lights?
- I’ve already started putting out other decorations but stockings and pine smelling candles seem funny without a tree.
- Thanksgiving is 1 week late this year. That is 1 week less without a Christmas tree.(Plus the vaca from number 3- This is two weeks without a Christmas tree!! Terrible.)
- Just picture this: You’re sitting in the living room under lots of cozy blankets. Allegra curls up at your side for a little cuddle session. A great scented candle is lit and your hot chocolate is perfectly poured. You look up and there’s your tree, decorated to perfection. I’m convinced that there’s nothing better than that
If you celebrate, do you believe in decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving?
