I always get excited for Christmas in late October. I know it’s early, but I can’t help it. It’s almost like there’s something in the air that smells like Christmas. The wind blows differently, the air is cooler, and the days get darker so soon. And I’m ready for it.
But I wait….
My nephews were at the service as well and the little one excitedly explained to me afterward that “an army guy sat next to him”. He was in awe.
Now that this honourable day is over I couldn’t help but get a little (more) giddy about Christmas. I was Pinteresting the shit out of Christmas party foods and outfits and checking out Christmas movies (they’ve been playing back-to-back since Thanksgiving weekend – grrr!). I even watched a cute little Christmas movie last night before bed.
The 12 Dates of Christmas.
Think of this movie as Groundhog Day on Christmas crack – and minus my man Bill Murray.
I was surprised to find that it was a few years old – as I’d never heard of it. It was adorable though.
Basically, Kate (Amy Smart) lives Christmas Eve over and over (see? Groundhog Day.).
If you have the chance to watch this over the next SIX WEEKS (ack!!) you definitely should.
