Contrary to what others think, I am a firm believer that the Christmas season doesn't begin until AFTER THANKSGIVING.
I went to the mall the other day to apply for store retail jobs for the holidays to make some extra moolah. And let me tell you, they had Christmas decorations up all over the place. Thankfully, I haven't heard any Christmas music on the radio yet.
While I was in Borders to see if they had a book I wanted, I saw this fake Christmas tree. Every year my family gets a real one, so I'd never do a fake one...but...if I had to, ya know, because of some apartment living rule or something...well, I'd actually like this one, but only because it's PINK!
Secondly, it feels more like the holiday season because we had a nutritionist stop by my office yesterday and tell us how not to gain 50 million pounds. She basically said that we should have a 1 plate limit, to eat a little something before going to the party with the huge buffet of food, and to not stress overeating. If we have a huge meal if fatty things, just balance it out with some fruits and veggies later. Sounds easy enough, right?
Lastly, two days ago we got our first dusting of snow. Of course everyone and their mother freaked out on the road, and traffic was terrible. But thankfully we haven't gotten anything real bad yet.
Does it feel like the holidays to you yet?
