I start planning and shopping in October so that it doesn't strain the budget. Otherwise, worrying about money zaps the fun.
We decorate thanksgiving weekend and make a day of it, it's fun for the kids and it's all knocked out in a single day.
With those 2 plans in place, most of the "work" is done by the end of November, leaving December free to just enjoy!
It is never too early to think about Christmas! It will be here before you know it...

Is it too early to start thinking about Christmas 2012? I ordered a couple gifts already. Just a little jumpstart!
I do a little bit each day.
I also have a nativity scene that is the main focus of my rooms. I have some nativity set for each room in my home. It helps me remember that Jesus is the reason for the season and everything else is just stuff.
So many of us have heaping plates as it is. How do you handle the school programs, class parties, decorating, gift shopping, gift wrapping, shipping gifts, paying for the gifts, etc? With all that hubbub, how do you make sure to revel in it and appreciate the special moments, too?
Slow and steady wins the race.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
