Luke’s very strict about not decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving, which is actually a good thing because knowing me, I’d put up the tree in October. He jokingly scolded me the other day for having ornaments on the counter in the kitchen (I had just bought them), and he gave me a sideways look when he saw I was watching ‘A Christmas Story’ this morning. I had to stress to him that the pile of presents I had just wrapped and left in the living room (where the tree will be in two short days) did not count as decorating. I’m just ahead of the game. I’m not sure I convinced him.
