What’s the first sign of Christmas?

We are hurtling closer to Christmas with only 11 days left before the big day as of this writing.  What is the trigger for you that marks the beginning of the Christmas season?  I offer a few items below perhaps these will be on your list or maybe you have your own ideas.

  • You have your first Christmas cookie
  • You make your first Christmas cookie
  • You see Rudolph, the Grinch, Charlie Brown and Frosty the Snowman specials
  • You buy your first present
  • You send your first card
  • You get your first card
  • You put up the tree
  • You utter your first curse word while putting up the icicle lights
  • You wrap your first present
  • The first significant snow fall after Thanksgiving
  • The first Christmas song hear you hear on the radio
  • A general uptick in the rudeness of Wal-Mart cashiers
  • Seasonal specialties begin to appear in the grocery store like: fruitcake, egg nog, Christmas Ale and stuff from Hickory Farms.
  • Memories of creepy crawlers, lite brite and easy bake ovens come flooding back to you while day dreaming at work
  • The friendly staff at the corner Christmas tree makes their annual appearance
  • Black Friday ads

Believe it or not, next week is Christmas week.  Get busy shopping or you might be buying your last gift (a 12 pack of gum at the mini mart) on Christmas Eve.  Have a good week.
