As newlyweds, we put our Christmas tree up on Thanksgiving night. We've continued that tradition for eight years now.
I'm a little sad for Thanksgiving... after all, sharing your big day with another holiday can't be much fun. But, I just love the wonder and beauty of Christmas. (So does Lukey - just look at that face!)
And the family togetherness, fun and laughter.
And spending a month straight focusing on the reason for the season... The birth of a savior. The gift from our Heavenly Father. The promise of eternal life.
"For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him." John 3:16-17
