I fully understand that Christmas is almost two months away. And while the malls have had their trees up since Columbus Day, most normal people haven’t started putting up their Christmas decorations yet.
But I am thinking about it.
Putting up Christmas decorations–especially lights–is one of my least favorite tasks. You know the whole story–one light goes out . . . they all go out!
So as I was contemplating taking down the Halloween decorations, since that holiday has actually passed, I came up with a brilliant idea. (Keep in mind that when one gets an idea, a light bulb comes on over their head. But when one idea goes out . . . they all go out!)
Why not re-use my Halloween decorations for Christmas?
It’s brilliant. They are already up. Not only do I save time not taking them down, but I don’t have to spend a lot of time putting up new decorations.
Here is my Halloween tabloid . . . be prepared to be afraid.
OK. The whole thing was created back when my kids were young enough to care about Halloween and enjoyed
listening to daddy curse helping daddy in the woodshop.
So here is my plan for Christmas . . . be prepared to deck the halls!
It’s perfect! Now I know what you are thinking . . . but weren’t there three ghosts in the Christmas Carol? The Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Presents, and the Ghost of Christmas Bills Yet to be Paid. So I only have two ghosts, but now the pumpkin has a Santa Clause bag.
My family is less than enthusiastic about my creation.
Maybe if I put a bright ribbon on the pumpkin.
Yeah, that’ll do it!
HO HO HO!
