“Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind. ”
― Mary Ellen Chase
Since Thanksgiving is going to be a bit different this year (I’m meeting up with some American expats for a service at St. Paul’s Cathedral), we have somewhat removed it from the calendar. The trouble is that Thanksgiving is the Small Dog clan’s traditional bastion against Christmas celebrations – we do our holidays one at a time, thank you very much.
Therefore, in it’s absence, we’ve agreed that officially sanctioned Christmas celebrations are allowed once Jeff’s birthday passes. (I know you were all just waiting with bated breath…). Enjoy the gorgeousness! I sure am!
