I start to feel the spirit of Halloween, then the whole holiday season ending with Christmas.
Maybe it’s because I work in retail or because I do Etsy and most of my stuff revolves around holidays, but I’ve been thinking about Halloween for the past few weeks. (starting to prepare my shop)
Anyone else feel like they think from one holiday to the next? My husband and dad both have birthdays, my and my husband’s anniversary, my mom’s birthday, back to school, Halloween, Nano starts, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, my daughter’s birthday, Christmas, New Years, my birthday, Valentine’s Day, my other daughter’s birthday, Easter, etc
Most of those involve fun decorations and I love the spirit from September through December- not to mention all the shopping, decorating and baking. (be prepared for tons of gluten/dairy free recipes around the holidays and I’ll be posting crafts.
I’m in the process of preparing my shop for the holidays and started Christmas shopping (since we have a birthday 3 weeks before Christmas) and that further got me in the mood.
What puts you in the holiday mood? Anyone else completely fine with seeing decorations and such come out in stores months in advance? I constantly hear people complain about how early stores start getting ready for Christmas, but since having kids I love it.
