Only five more months until Christmas…are you counting? If you make gifts, you might be starting to think about it.
All the differing messages you encounter in the stores can make your head spin. Just what season is it? There have already been mid-season sales, the pencils and binders came out for back-to-school the week after school finished. Today, the craft store had end of season reductions on all the summer games and crafts and the Halloween decorations are making their way to front and centre.
I do make gifts for Christmas, but I don’t usually start them until after Halloween. I might knit some socks in the summer and stash them for later (spoiler alert), but thinking about the “upcoming” holiday season isn’t really on my radar in the middle of the actual holidays.
This year has been even more confusing as the summer weather was slow to start and the last couple of days have felt more Fall-like than summer. (I’m not complaining, it has been nice to lose the humidity and be able to breathe).
So with tongue firmly planted in the cheek. I wish you all a “merry five month countdown!”
