Yes that’s right! Thanksgiving is this weekend and now on to Christmas? NO…not yet! I actually like the fact that Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in October and not November like in the US.
Christmas Village is the name of the decor section of our local hardware store. It’s a huge area that is separate from the main store. It’s so great and just a walk through it puts you in the mood for Christmas! I love Christmas anyway so it doesn’t take much. BUT I want to enjoy Thanksgiving FIRST!!!
I know it’s just a wee bit early to start thinking decor, there’s Halloween and Remembrance Day yet but I actually went in Christmas Village tonight because we were looking for a shorter string of lights for our deck, unfortunately there was nothing I was looking for. While I was there I decided to browse and see what “new” things are out this year and even check out the latest trends in decorating trees. I didn’t worry about this too much when we were expat ( it was just nice to have a tree) but since I’ve been home and looking at Pinterest and remembering what some friends trees looked like, style in decorating has changed a little bit. Not that I’ll redo anything but it’s fun to look!
It was fun to get out a bit tonight even if it was for groceries and errands. I am feeling somewhat better. I just have to be careful how quickly I move my head right now and not overdo it too much.
Have a GREAT LONG WEEKEND!!!
