Seems like no matter when I get started on the holiday prep, I’m never quite ready when they do roll around. The purchase of a new Christmas tree this year gave me a jump start.
My family was so impressed when the tree was up the day after Thanksgiving. That truly NEVER happens in this house. We are lucky to be decorating the tree sometime before Christmas Eve, and in fact, two years ago, the tree never did see an ornament. Pretty sad tree that year.
This year, I tried to make an online joke of it.
But the fact of the matter is, I’m a procrastinator through and through. Not sure how to correct this character flaw. It has been part of my psyche for
50+ many years. May take 50 many more to reverse!
That’s why I’m wondering if New Year’s greeting cards are an actual thing (and yes, of course they are!!)
The Christmas cards? Never did make it out the door this year. Truth be told, they never even made their way out of the box they came in. Felt sort of Grinch-like, as each card arrived in the mail from all the usual suspects. I didn’t stop Christmas cards from coming, they came all the same!
Decorating the house for the holidays? Thank goodness for lazy lights!
Christmas cookies? Let’s start a new tradition and make them during the week between Christmas and New Year. (Yea, how’s that new tradition going?)
We have the perfect surname (Auld) for the excuse that can be a New Year’s celebration. So I’m gonna do it this year. This will be the year of the New Year’s cards.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, for auld lang syne.
