In my quest for a slower and more meaningful December spent with friends and family, I plan on completing 30 Days of tasks to get ready for Christmas before Thanksgiving…and I invite you to join me.
Day 29: Decorate the House
Of course, if you feel really strongly about not putting up the decor until after Thanksgiving, then definitely wait. My 30 days series is scheduled to end tomorrow, so of course I had to list decorating before Thanksgiving.
Rather than make the decorating a chore (if you don't enjoy decorating), enlist the family to help you. Make it a fun day with games and hot chocolate, and you might find it as part of your holiday traditions in future years.
Our Holiday Decorating:
My boys were super excited about putting up our tree this year, so they actually put it up on Sunday afternoon. They are slowly adding ornaments to the tree, and I'll probably pull out the rest of the decor this weekend. We actually are pretty minimalist in our decor, but I do love Christmas lights – and so do my boys (as evidenced by them turning them on whenever they are home!)
What about you? Do you wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate?
