Most years I try to block out the holiday season until the official shotgun start after Thanksgiving. This year I don't even care, I want Christmas cheer & I want it now! haha I may hold out on actual Christmas music. Plus starting early means not having to continually play catch-up. Example: Advent Calendars.
Advent calendars weren't really a tradition in my house as a kid, we had them occasionally but it was no big whoop, but I love them. Being the grown-ass adult woman that I am, it's appropriate for me to start investing in traditions. I'm not only subject to the traditions of my childhood but I can also start building the traditions I'll want to carry the rest of my life. (Wow, that's almost trippy to think about.) One thing I really enjoy are the seasons of preparation... at Easter we go through Lent, at Christmas we go through ADVENT.
And getting a head start of Christmas means I could (hypothetically) create a super awesome, keep forever type advent calendar actually in time for advent! Here are some of my favorite examples I've found so far:
