Decorating or not?

with 2 comments

Thanksgiving (both US and Canadian) has come and gone.  Thanksgiving is not a holiday here, but D came home early and we spent Thursday evening eating take-out Chinese and then watching French-Canadian reality TV.   Go figure, it was fun.

Christmas is now officially “on” from here on out.  And this is the first year we’re not going “home” to see friends and family.  Various reasons but the biggest are:  1.) 16 hour travel days with a 3 month old, and 2.) H1N1.

So back to the question, do we decorate?  Our apartment is small and we’ve had a big influx of baby gear so far this year – there is no way I want to put up a Christmas tree.  I thought stockings would be cute but I cannot find any anywhere!  And yes, they do do Christmas stockings in Germany, though the tradition is that they get filled on the December 6th instead of on Christmas morning.  Bah, I suppose if I stall long enough it won’t matter.

  1. That is so interesting! I’m curious to see how it all goes. Good luck with traveling. Fortunately at that age, they are fairly easy. Just remember to do bottles/or BF/paci going up and coming down 🙂 xx

  2. I couldn’t wait to decorate this year, but I think if you can’t be bothered, don’t worry about it.
