Christmas Season Starting

You can definitely tell that the Christmas season is starting.

Thanksgiving is over and people are starting to decorate.

As I have been out walking this week I can see that many houses are now lit up or have decorations in their yards.

Christmas Decorations, December Walk, Christmas LightsI have been watching for the people who live in this house to start putting up their decorations. They always have a pretty nice display.

Red and White Flowers - Feast of St. Stephen - Good King Wenceslas Christmas cards are also starting to flow through the postal service. I know of several friends who are sending out piles of cards.

60's Christmas Greetings, scrapbooks, old Christmas cardsThis reminds me of Classic Christmas Cards that my Grandma saved in her scrapbooks.

Red Candle on Black Background - Classic Christmas Card - Holiday Card - Red CandleI also wrote a post about Classic Candle Cards that included images from my Grandma’s Scrapbooks.

Christmas Carol - Time Travel - Charles Dickens - TravelI am also looking forward to reading A Christmas Carol. I will often read this classic by Dickens in December. Perhaps you will watch one of the many renditions on TV instead 🙂

Grandpa Braman - A Dicken's Christmas? - Full White Beard - Top HatI also think of my Grandpa during this time of the year. Partly because his birthday was in December, but also because he was the town Santa Claus in Hamburg, Iowa for many years.

For the other side of my family I can think about two Christmases. Did you know that some of the Amish celebrate two Christmases?  See my post Amish Christmases.
