what holiday are you celebrating?





well, its almost october. you know what that means. all the stores are busy setting up their christmas displays. me, on the other hand? i still value halloween and the moons between now and thanksgiving. in the past few days i've started pulling out fall and halloween decorations. how neat are those owls? i forgot all about them since last year. i absolutely love going through my boxes of decorations. its like opening long lost, forgotten gifts you bought for yourself. it also doesnt help my memory when i buy stuff after the holiday for dirt cheap and dont actually put it out that year. this was the case of the owls not last halloween, but the halloween before.

I'm not a big fan of Halloween, but I love me some Thanksgiving. Still celebrate it every year from abroad.

My neighbors put our their extremely tacky Halloween decorations. Ugh. The only thing I actually decorate the house for is Christmas, and that's only because Sarah wants me to. She does have a few "seasonal" boxes though. Every few months, she goes downstairs and gets out new placemats, rugs, frames, etc. Strictly a woman thing in this house.

I love forgetting about stuff and then finding it and being thrilled! I do that with xmas decorations, but not Halloween or other holdiays, because...well, I don't have any, lol!

We are those terrible people who typically turn off the lights and hide on Halloween but with a 19 month old that now seems lame, so we bought 2 tacky decorations and some candy. Our thanksgiving is 2 weeks away and I prefer those decorations ( I limit myself to containers of unique gourds ) but I don't think that day is nearly as significant to Canadians as it is to Americans. I'm itching to open the Christmas decoration boxes though:)
