K: We’re only a week into November; yet the holiday season is already upon us, showcasing itself through the Christmas songs on the radio, decorations already popping up, and a packed social calendar to celebrate. As we enter into the busiest time of the year, I’ve got a few reflections that I thought would be worth sharing.
In the past, I used to be a firm believer that Christmas decorations shouldn’t go up until after Thanksgiving, and that we shouldn’t rush the fall season just to jump to winter. If you are this way, there’s nothing wrong with that; however, my perspective has changed over the past few years and I’m no longer holding onto that firm belief.
Instead of being grumpy about passing over Thanksgiving, I’ve decided to fully embrace the earliness of Christmas this year. Why wouldn’t I want to celebrate the best time of the year for a little bit longer? Why shouldn’t we honor our Savior’s birthday and be excited about its approach? Christmas truly brings out joy, peace, cheer, reflection, togetherness, and so many other positive qualities. I don’t know about you, but I feel like our world could use these qualities more than ever right now. Why not embrace the season?
To help spur the season on, we’re jumping on board with holiday content. We won’t be skipping over Thanksgiving though (stay tuned for a few Thanksgiving Day outfit ideas next week), but we did go ahead and add a “Holiday Shop” tab up at the top of the blog. There, you’ll find gifts for her and gifts for him so that you can get a jump start on that perfect gift. If there’s anything in particular you’d like to see with holiday content, please be sure and leave a comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
