Holidays are super important to Shannon and Christmas is the most important one to her. I'm not sure if it's because her birthday is on the 14th and, when she was younger, I kept all Christmas decor away until her party and celebration were over, but for the past few (ha) years, the day after Thanksgiving, the lights are up and then the decorating begins! And, look at her... she's decorating her dorm room, too! She LOVES Christmas!

Shannon is the biggest traditionalist I know. Holidays are especially important to her and Christmas is extra special. At her insistence, we put up the outside lights over Thanksgiving weekend and the next weekend is reserved for the Christmas tree and interior decorations. And interior decorations mean her bedroom, too. She has twinkle lights and a mini tree (complete with ornaments) that get set up each year. Since she’s in Minnesota, we had to change it up a bit this year... everything was put up over Thanksgiving because she was home. And, yep... it would appear that she’s started a new holiday tradition: Decorating the dorm room! Thank goodness for the $5 sale table at Target... she couldn’t resist! And, up first... the twinkle lights!
