It is November which means Christmas Season is upon us! (For all you Christmas-Doesn’t-Start-Til-After-Thanksgiving-Nay-Sayers (I am looking at you, oh roommate of mine (whom I LOVE)) I apologize, but I will NOT stifle my Christmas Spirit for twenty more days. It isn’t happening).
A little bit about Christmas in my household growing up: My mom LOVES Christmas. Like a crazy woman. Like a legit nutso. Like in High School I had to institute a “No Christmas until after Halloween” rule. So every November first for as long as I can remember we have started decorating for Christmas. This year I called my mom to wish her a happy Halloween, and she told me she spent the night handing out candy, listening to Christmas music, and putting up decorations. I was super bummed I missed it. (I was less bummed when she told me it had snowed that morning, but that is neither here nor there).
While we don’t have many decorations up in the apartment yet, I do have a strand of lights in my room, and it is getting me by. It also helps that Disney is fully decorated, so if I need some Christmas Spirit I can just head over to property to get my fix.
Last week I was lucky enough to go to a cast preview of the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights with my roommate. The Dancing Lights are my all time favorite thing Disney does all year, so I was super pumped to go to the preview. It was amazing. We got free cookies and hot cocoa, met Santa Goofy and just had and just walked around soaking in the Magic. I could try to explain the magic in words, but I’m going to do it in pictures and videos instead. (Sorry for the poor quality. It’s all from my phone).
Soak in the season, friends:
