Running on Christmas Cheer Fumes

Every year we get super excited for Christmas and by the time December 25th rolls around we are ready for it to be over. This year I started way too early, we visited Disney Theme Parks the week before Thanksgiving and all the decorations were up and the holiday music was blasting. We had our Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving. I jumped the gun this year on the Holiday Cheer and ended up running on fumes.

Next year we will wait until Black Friday to start decorating. That way we don’t get burned out like a Yankee candle left on the mantle all night. We are already removing Christmas items from the house and putting them back in storage. We usually wait until January 2nd. I think it makes Christmas much more gloomy.
