Merry Christmas! I know, It’s October, but in our house, it’s the start of the Christmas decorating… It sounds silly when you say that out loud, but I have a reason!
Yes, my family actually starts putting up Christmas decos in October. “That’s crazy!” I hear you saying, but wait for the reasons.
I think that having a little Christmas early is a good thing. It’s about joy, hope, peace, and a bunch of other amazing things – who doesn’t want that a few months early?
Our reasons are a little sad, I’ll give you that, but I prefer to think of them as special.

Over ten years ago my Mother was diagnosed with cancer, and she was really worried about that year being her final one to spend with use, and have Christmas. So, in October, she put up the decorations and is still her 10+ years later. BUT, the decorations in October stuck! It’s a reminder of making it through a tough time, and being here with family and loved ones!
Okay, so it comes from a sad place, but it’s turned into a joyous tradition (all while giving everyone we know a good laugh!)
What are some Christmas traditions that YOU wish could last all year, or come in a little early? Is it the Christmas tunes, dinners, or decorations (like us)? Share them in the comments below! I’d love to know.
