I have always been the type to start playing Bing Crosby on Thanksgiving evening, and to have all my lights up by Dec. 1. This year, though, there's been nary a Melekalikimaka, and we only got our Christmas lights up today! I'm hoping our neighbors are similar procrastinators, because at the moment, only three of about 40 houses in our cul de sac are decked out for the season. It's a little bit sad.
I'll be digging out the Christmas CDs tomorrow, but our tree will have to wait until our return from Nebraska. One perk of celebrating Christmas on the old calendar is that the season lasts six weeks! We won't take our lights and tree down until Jan. 13.
