Halloween isn't big here (plus it's a stupid holiday) and I've always ALWAYS wanted to just have a Christmas tree up for like six months. In fact, I'd like one in every room please. One day.
Anyway, since I'm a grownup and I can do whatever I want (isn't being a grownup the best sometimes? All those people who would give an arm and a leg to go back to high school are smoking crack- I love being in charge) anyway, since I can do whatever I want, we set up the tree on Halloween.
Not like 'this year we set up the tree on Halloween.' Like, always.
We haven't always. We used to be traditional conformists. I used to think it was rebellious to set it up the weekend after Thanksgiving.
Even the weekend after Thanksgiving (which is early for some people!!) only gives you like three or four weeks of twinkle lights!!! That's just crazy talk.
It mostly started out of necessity- we moved two years in a row over Christmas so it made sense to set up the tree early bc our holidays were being severely cut short.
Now, though, I just like it.
I like the ambiance of twinkle lights. How pretentious do I sound? I like the way they look, and I like the way they make me feel.
Plus, I'm a grown ass lady and I do what I want.
Linking up with Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop with the prompt: write a post inspired by the word light. I sort of let it get away from me, but whatever.
