A week before Christmas and all through the house...
I am admittedly a Christmas slacker this year. I have procrastinated throughout the season to get the Christmas things done that are supposed to get done.
I got Christmas cards out last week, finally.
Made my first batch of Christmas "cookies" today (carmels & peanut butter truffles).
And have finally decided that its too close to Christmas to put up a tree (sounds like a lot of work for 1 week)....
Somehow, it still feels like Christmas to me. We've went to a few parties, and enjoyed the Christmas trees at other people's homes. This season has been quite relaxing... since I have slacked on the decorating and baking, I somehow have been able to enjoy the seasonal gatherings and others cookies a bit more. But... I am still wondering, is it wrong to enjoy the season without putting up a tree?
(Don't get me wrong -- I hope not to make an annual habit of being a Christmas slacker... but for this year, it sure feels nice.)
