There are too many months that have slipped by so quickly, aren't there? How can it already be almost November?!
When I was a little girl, the countdown to Christmas begun in mid-October.
My parents would begin their Christmas shopping, and I would begin my coordinated snooping in drawers and other hiding-places for any gifts. I was a very stealthy child, and made sure to conduct my searches when they were occupied doing other things.
Christmas-time is in the summer back in Australia, so while searching for gifts, I daydreamed about pink snow and candy canes. The closest thing we ever got to snow were pink flowering trees. And during one of those little daydreams I got sloppy. I had found a big shopping bag in my parents' bedroom and it had staples all along the top. I knew that I would have to pull them out carefully and replace them as soon as I'd peeked inside. So after unpicking each little staple, I was greeted by a bag full of colorful toys and books. My mind started wandering, and I guess I must have forgotten to replace all the staples, and only realized my mistake an hour later when my mum's stern voice called my name from her bedroom....
Did you ever get caught peeking at gifts before Christmas? For some people it might not be an issue, since a lot of people tend to do last minute gift-shopping just a few days before Christmas. Are you an early-shopper?
I still can't believe it's almost Christmas!!!
Have a Fun Weekend.
