I just don’t even feel like putting up any Christmas decorations or a tree this year. The day after Thanksgiving we put up our outdoor lights but that’s all we’ve done so far. I just can’t seem to get into the holiday spirit.
I don’t know what it is. Part of me feels like the house is still cluttered from the wedding and I don’t want to clutter it more with Christmas decor. I’m torn. The other part of me says this is our first Christmas as a married couple and we should decorate!
How can I get more into the spirit of things? Or should I just forget about it this year and leave the house the way it is?

What if you had a low-key holiday party? Like, just invited some good friends over for cocktails or dessert? Would that maybe give you motivation to decorate a little?

My tree is up, I lit a fire today for the sake of… but I feel like it should still be summer! Where did the year go!

redherring has a great idea! I think a small get together with some friends would be an awesome way to get into the holiday spirit. It will get you in the mood to decorate and to put away wedding stuff still hanging around. Also, you’ll get to break out the new china (if you got some as a gift from the wedding).. I know I will by dying for any reason to use ours when we get it!
This year I am actually excited about Christmas. I’m not the biggest Christmas person, but for some reason, I am REALLY into it this year. I don’t know what has gotten into me…
