Photo Friday #22: start of the season

Over the past few weeks I've noticed that you can generally divide people into two groups: those who adore Christmas and are excited about celebrating as soon as possible, and those who think breathing a word about the holiday season until after Thanksgiving is utterly ridiculous and "rushing Christmas".

Well. I personally fall into the former, and I think the only way you "rush Christmas" is when you stubbornly wait to celebrate, nay-saying all those around you, and then try to cram everything into a three-week period so that you end up being too busy to even enjoy it. That is rushing Christmas. So there.

And if it weren't for finishing that dissertation, I wouldn't have waited until Santa crossed the finish line at the Macy's parade to start addressing our Christmas cards. You guys! It's Christmastime!
