I decree it so. Having spent the majority of the afternoon writing out Christmas cards*, ordering postage and rocking out to Mannheim Steamrollers.
The holiday knitting started a while ago but the holiday knitting could easily start on December 26 every year--so that doesn't count.
Now, I have to get shopping.
Have you kicked into holiday mode yet?
*No postal personnel have been given hernias by the weight of my Christmas card pile--yet.
