Although it’s still only November and being a firm believer that Christmas shouldn’t really start until December (to prevent Christmas overload), I will admit to feeling more than a little Christmassy.
It all started on Monday when I decided that this was the year we were going to buy Christmas jumpers; for the past few years we have talked about getting Christmas jumpers, but never actually got around to it (probably because we have to buy them online and by the time we think of it there isn’t enough time to have them delivered before Christmas!).
After dinner I went onto Amazon and typed Christmas jumpers into the search bar and what a wonderful selection came up! It really was just like Christmas, with jumpers sporting all sorts of Christmas pictures and patterns..
Jumpers covered in images of Santa, reindeer, elves and snowmen. Musical Christmas jumpers and Christmas jumpers embedded with little small, twinkling lights.
The family went from showing very little interest to excitedly clicking through the jumpers, looking for the ones they wanted.
Deciding which jumpers to buy was difficult. We set one ‘rule’ that no two people could choose the same jumper.
Hubby Dearest settled for a blue Santa jumper. My son went for a Santa suit jumper. My daughter chose a bright red Olaf jumper and I went for a cream and dark green reindeer jumper (it will make a change from the pink and purple jumpers I usually wear!).
The order has been placed and all being well we will receive them in the next couple of weeks.
Since ordering our Christmas jumpers there have been a number of Christmas discussions; like when are we putting up the decorations (between the 10th and 12th)…We really do have that many decorations!
When will I be making fudge and shortbread? Soon…
And have the children been good enough for a visit from Father Christmas? With strong arguments presented by both my 17 year old son and my 14 year old daughter.
When does it begin to feel a lot like Christmas for you?
So that’s my Word Of The Week for this week. Why don’t you check out what others are writing about this week for their #WotW on Jocelyn Reading’s blog (The Reading Residence).
