Christmas has always been magical to me.
The wonder of the lights.
The smell of the tree.
The presents under the tree. Definitely the presents under the tree!
I like to keep that magic fresh, and so as to not get desensitized to the season, I like to wait to put the tree up till at least two weeks before Christmas, and I don’t decorate till a day or two before we get the tree.
Some people call me a Scrooge, I like to think of myself as being a protector of the magic of Christmas.
No one believes me.
Superman on the other hand wants everything up on Thanksgiving day.
We compromise by doing it my way.
Until this year.
Sunday afternoon, Superman and the girl came down the stairs wearing Christmas hats and brandishing swords and machetes, and committed mutiny on me.
Don’t let this face fool you.
They were vicious.
PS. It was GREAT! I didn’t have to do a thing! Now if they would just mutiny when it is time to take them down.
