Fifteen Days to Christmas

Christmas time is here. For some people, Christmas preparations started the day after Thanksgiving. Puff! Up went the Christmas tree and the Christmas decorations. A week later, the Christmas presents sit around the tree.

I hung the Christmas wreath on the front door yesterday. The day before that the husband and I did some online Christmas Shopping. Maybe tonight, I will finally put the artificial tree up. Since Sunday, I've thought about putting it up after the mama goes to sleep so she would have a pleasant surprise in the morning. But by 11 o'clock, I've lost my motivation. So, I'll probably do it while the mama watches her evening TV so she can distract herself with giving me directions on which branches need to be filled with more ornaments. Yes, the tree will definitely go up tonight. As will the Christmas stockings be hung on the hearth, including those of our dearly beloved parakeets in heaven.

Have you got your tree up yet?

Today's Christmas song is "Rockin Around the Christmas Tree", sung by Brenda Lee.  Enjoy!

P.S. I'm hooking up at Java's Follow Friday 40 and Over! Come check out other bloggers with me by clicking here.

  2. One of my very favorite Christmas songs. We used to entertain at nursing homes, community centers and other civic places. We had a routine to that song. In fact we had routines to many Christmas songs. I absolutely love Christmas songs.... sing them year round!!!
    Love to you,

  3. P.S. I just read about your new book. My congratulations to you both. How proud you must be. But gotta be honest, I'll brag about your book but I won't be paging through it for a career. That would be like Mama looking for a new career. Ha

  4. Ooh I like that song! Christmas spirit is spreading like fire..
