Christmas and Advent 2008

August 5, 2008 § 1 Comment

I walked into Fred Meyer’s the other day and tucked away near the cards and the books was the first Christmas display, the American Greetings ornaments I believe.   Normally I am rather perturbed by the consumer driven tendency to market Christmas earlier and earlier each year, but this year I looked at it and thought about how dizzying the Advent/Christmas season is.  Every year I hope to be more organised and for the last few years I have note of “The Holiday Grand Plan” which starts holiday planning in the last week of August and finishes it in the main planning endeavors by the middle of December. 

Normally I forget all about the “Grand Plan” until mid October.  This year I actually remembered about it early enough to bump it back two weeks so I can use it for Advent and Christmas.  I plan to bump the Grand Plan back to August 17 and “Tweak” it so that I can focus on Advent too.

    Hmmmm…. I also *always* mean to get ready, be prepared, *this year will be different* in regards to holiday preparation. I am actually making Christmas presents right now, so I’m way ahead of the game for me. I hadn’t even considered the HGP yet, though. Thanks for the reminder!

    Have a lovely week, Darcee!
    Blessings,
