I'm a planner and a lister. And for almost 20 years I have made it my intention to be done a lot of the running around and shopping for Christmas by the time Thanksgiving Vacation begins. (Yes, that means I don't do Black Friday sales.)
Sometimes this has helped me really set apart the season to be different and myself to be prepared. Sometimes it just makes Thanksgiving week incredibly stressful.
For the next 31days, I'm going to commit to writing and planning about Christmas season 2012. I will write about preparing our home and our hearts for the season where we celebrate the coming of the BabyRedeemer.
