The last two years I haven't broken out my Straight No Chaser Christmas albums (the only Christmas albums I personally own) until Thanksgiving - keeping in line with Filkins-family tradition. I have to be honest though and come clean: maybe its because my third holiday season from home is taking its toll on me, or maybe its because the Billa grocery store here in town is already sporting its christmas tree and santa hat... but we're a week out from the Macy's Tday parade and I just can't take it anymore!!
I'm ready to rock around the Christmas tree.
So, world? I apologize. I'm making an exception this year, being a hypocrite, and listening to songs about spiked egg nog, holy nights, Mr. Grinch, and the little baby Jesus (thank you SNC!!!!!).
My 12 inch tree won't get decorated until next week though (although I never technically put the actual tree away last year ;)).
