Holiday Spirit

I cannot believe Thanksgiving has come and gone already! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend, we had a great time seeings lots of friends and family and eating our weight in delicious-ness.

When we got home yesterday afternoon, we were ready to put up the Christmas tree and get into the the holiday spirit. I am Jewish and Greg is Christian, so Christmas is something still (fairly) new and exciting for me (especially the tree, it's so fun!), and I love decorating for the holiday.

Have you started decorating for the holidays yet? Watching holiday movies? How are you getting in the holiday spirit?

  1. On Friday, I decided to get in the holiday spirit, too - and so I went out and bought a tree, ornaments, lights and stockings and started decorating our house while playing Christmas music - it was so fun!
    Much love,

  2. Oh what fun! Do you celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah together? I love finding out about other traditions from countries around the world and other religions. It's so fun to incorporate those things.

  4. My bestie and her husband are similar to you and your hunny in the mixed holiday regard. They have compromised on the tree making it blue and white every year. It's always gorgeous. And who am I kidding, I live for her "latke-palooza!" ~Megan

  16. I'm a new follower and I really like this blog already! Your post is definitely helping me get into a Christmas mode as well, Elf is an amazing film. It's pretty cool you've been introduced to Christmas this year, it would be awesome if Christmas was still a new experience for me that's for sure.
