I absolutely LOVE Christmas.
We are totally Christmas crazy.
We put the Christmas tree up the weekend after Halloween, and we still have the
visit in December. This has been a tradition for about 7 years now, and despite our son knowing that Twinkletoes is not real, it makes it even more magical, not less. Elf on the Shelf
