52 Days Until Christmas…Go!

xmas12132013-1

Aren’t these sorts of displays just beautiful? I can’t help but feel even more festive looking at them…

Hi everyone! I’m feeling especially cheerful today…or should I say festive? With Halloween over (And it was a fun night…all those fun costumes! And the candy…can’t forget the candy), Christmas preparations are officially a go.

The displays, the lists, the shopping trips…I’m so excited already. Shopping for gifts is always a difficult task (Getting that ‘perfect gift’ can be a bit of a pain sometimes), but it still makes me happy at the end of the day. Then comes wrapping, and of course stopping by somewhere for some hot chocolate, taking pictures of the pretty snow scene…I feel like I’m describing something very clichéd. I probably am. But whatever…I’m sure I’m not the only one out there.

Oh…and I have another reason to come up with some more nail art! This is going to be great…I’m really starting to get into the Christmas spirit. Can’t you tell?

Anyways, I hope at least a few of you out there know what I’m talking about…

Counting Down The Days Until Christmas…

Lately, I’ve actually started getting gift catalogues and I’ve been starting to see Christmas displays pop up. It isn’t even Halloween yet, I know, but I can’t help but be excited…Christmas is my absolute favourite holiday, so I start anticipating it really early in the year.

I’ve basically been visiting the X-Mas Clock website pretty much weekly (65 days until Christmas!). I’m excited for Halloween too, don’t get me wrong, but Christmas is just…there’s just something about it that makes me feel really happy. I’ve been preparing for Halloween, but all these catalogues and displays that have started popping up have made it so that Christmas is always lingering in the back of my mind.

Anyways, I wonder if I’m the only one feeling this way…I guess I should probably at least wait for Halloween to be over before I start planning for another holiday, huh?

But, in my defence, these stores with all their catalogues and displays are getting a much earlier jump-start on the holiday than me…I, in the very least, haven’t started shopping or anything yet. So I’m definitely not the earliest one.

Then again, I’m not trying to make any money off of the holiday (I’m going to lose money instead, though), am I right?
