The Christmas Season, Proper

Today is the day after Thanksgiving, and in my eyes, the REAL start of the Christmas Season.

I love Thanksgiving so much that I can’t really pay attention to Christmas until after the November holiday passes. This means no Christmas music, no Christmas shopping, and no Christmas recipes until the fourth Friday of the month. It helps, I feel, that Advent doesn’t begin until after Thanksgiving (is that always the case?).

Of course now that Thanksgiving has indeed passed for this year, I’ve got my Christmas play list ready on the computer and iPod, and I’m looking forward to the hymns we’ll be singing in Church starting next Sunday. Perhaps I’ll even work on some traditional Italian desserts for this time of year…
