Because of the recent snowfall and the much colder temperatures, I have been hit with a Danish phenomenon:
Translation: a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment. (Wiki)
Seriously, this getting dark so early takes some getting used to. Especially because it will be like this until whenever spring decides to make an appearance next year. That’s months from now.
So, when I helped my partner lug the Halloween bins back up the ceiling ladder to stash in the little attic space under the roof, I had him locate the Christmas lights bin.
Look, I’m not a fan of all the commercialized hoopla this holiday pushes on us, but I like a few decorations as we get deeper into December.
Except, it’s not December yet.
But, this year, there’s snow on the ground already…
It’s a little early for snow in these parts of Canada. Many years when the children were small and hoped for snow in late November and into the Christmas season, we never got any, or at least not till January or later.
This year is different.
Which is why I’m talking about Christmas lights in November. 😀
I may put up a few lights without the decorations just to cozy up the place a little. In later afternoons and evenings, I don’t like a lot if bright lights, but I do like softer, warmer lights to brighten up the place a bit.
Lamps, and lights on a string, will do that.
Perhaps this is something my girl and I can do this weekend while the boys are out of town. Take out and de-tangle the Christmas lights and hang them up around some windows.
But first , I have to get my phone fixed, there’s something wrong with my connection outside of the wifi at home, and we have a trip to a tea shop planned. It’s a PA day today, the children are off school and lo, I do not have to take anyone to a rink today. 😊
TGIF. Who has exciting plans for the weekend?
