I'm not trying to freak anybody out, but...
I'm sure you've seen the displays going up in the stores.
Believe it or not, there are only 80 more days until Christmas.
Some people think October is too early to be putting out Christmas stuff, but I disagree. I like that it gets me thinking about the holidays. I have a lot of people to buy for at Christmas, so I like to start my shopping early.
In a perfect world, I wouldn't even set foot in a store those last two weeks leading up to Christmas. I'd forgo all the grinches out there and spend my days watching Christmas movies, baking and savoring the season.
This is the time of year when traditions come out in full force. One of my favorite traditions takes place almost as soon as Halloween is over.
Lots and lots of pumpkin bread. I make a huge batch that yields me a lot of small loaves. I wrap them up and freeze them to give as gifts throughout November and December.
So how do you feel about getting a head start on the holidays? Do you like to plan ahead or would prefer to wait until after Thanksgiving?
