On the 38th day before Christmas...

Only 38 days until Christmas! *insert warning siren*

Sing along with my happy little Christmas song. Can be sung to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas".

In the 38 days until Christmas, I have a few little chores -

buy presents for umpteen family and friends
clean the house and garden to host the family Christmas day
prepare for Josh to change schools
attend a job interview
get the dog clipped
send out Christmas cards
help Josh with his science project
4 Christmas parties
3 ballet concerts
2 school prize-givings
and a gymnastics competition!

Lalala! Are you feeling Christmassy yet?

I'm beginning to think that in Australia we do it all wrong - having summer and the end of the school year and Christmas all at the same time. It's too much!

Couldn't we do Christmas in July when it's cold and dreary and we don't have anything else going on???

So, how are your Christmas preparations going?

My song sounds the same as yours Fiona! Agree with the idea of Christmas should be in the middle of the year. Take a deep breathe with each activity accomplished!

Christmas in July when it's cold and dreary? We really are on opposite ends of the planet!
