Now that it's past Thanksgiving, let's post our decorations here.

I woke up to see that my wife had finished decorating our trees.

Well done, Mrs. Sedan!

I see that you have a large clock on your wall. Is that to better keep track of [Dusk] and [Dawn]?

You have two trees.

Do you get twice the # of presents?

If you count the little ones on the porch and in the basement, it's probably around 5 or 6.

One of them is new to us, so this is the first time having two big trees.

Hmmm.

Didn't answer the question. Must be an aux evil.

So that means no presents, regardless of your number of trees.

I don't have home pictures, but I just finished putting up a few decorations in my work cube. The pic isn't great, but you can get the gist of it.

It's weird: I'm actually ready to do the Christmas thing a month early. I had been grumpy about things starting too early, but then by the time I'd allow myself to get excited it would be so close that it never really felt like a "season".

Of course, I've also self-imposed a "no decorations" rule each year until after my son's birthday in a few weeks, but that will be fine. We can get the tree the next day, etc. Then decorating, cookies and the A Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack on repeat.

In my house, it was always "Christmas-time" from the day After Thanksgiving to New Year's Day.

My sister did two trees for a long time when she hosted the family Christmas. One was upstairs for the morning, and just had gifts for the immediate family (her and her husband, plus their three kids). The other was downstairs for when the extended family came over in the afternoon.

I HATE Christmas music. I can only somewhat tolerate the old standards and instrumentals, but only right around Christmas Day.

Christmas creep invades the radio waves hardcore around here and some stations go all Christmas in mid-November.

gulp

A Very She & Him Christmas is good. I didn't realize it until I bought it last year, but A Charlie Brown Christmas is 200 proof yuletide cheer. I can tolerate a lot of other Christmas albums. There's one that came out this year with a bunch of "hip" artists like fun and Heartless Bastards that I'm going to get for $2 because Amazon had a coupon.

I just listened to Jonathan Coulton and John Roderick's One Christmas at a Time, and it's kinda meh. Decent, Jonathan Coulton-y, songs but nothing I would really expect people who didn't like him to enjoy. Christmas With You is the Best is the one exception, I'd say.

You also need The Superion's Fruitcake (with the B-52's Fred Schneider):

Dammit, now I know what Justin Bieber sounds like.

He sounds like autotune.

I tend not to open things from Dispaminite. Of course this might put me in a bit of a quandary if he is my secret Santa.

Get your christmas music out of my christmas decorations thread.

You know what we'd call christmas music if it was any good? Music. And we'd also listen to it year round. But it's not good, so we tolerate for a month every year.

Listening to it only one month out of the year is what makes it so special. Besides, I'm listening to Thanksgiving music from Halloween to Thanksgiving.

But listen again. Is it really the wind, or is it the sound of somebody running one step ahead of the dark?

So, you're listening to We Gather Together on repeat from Halloween to Thanksgiving?

Well, to be fair, Alice's Restaurant is a month long.
