Courtney thinks I’m sick and twisted….
See I have this problem. My sister and I share this problem, and that problem can be summed up quite simply by saying this:
It is now mid-September, and our Christmas Trees are not yet put up.
And no, it doesn’t help that my home is filled with the scent of piles of beeswax candles*.
So here’s what I’m thinking I’ll do…. I’m going to go home and subtly suggest to my kids that the sooner we get the tree up, the sooner Santa is going to come. Yes, it’s a lie. Yes, my wife will probably beat me to death. But it is completely, totally worth it.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go….
*One of the few unfortunate things about being American (yes, I admit it… I’m an obnoxious American) is that the Germans totally rock our worlds when it comes to Christmas. The Kris Kringle Markets are hands down the most incredible Christmas thing you’ll ever see, and the keystone of those markets are the beeswax candles. Tents filled with thousands of candles. The smell… It blows you away.
