Timeshifting Christmas

Hpim0981_1 Last week there was an article in the New York Times that The Gotham Gal pointed out to me.  It is about the way New Yorker’s tend to change the dates of holidays to suit their schedules.

It hit home, because we do exactly that at Christmas time.  Our kids get two weeks vacation from Dec 18th to January 3rd.  It’s a huge opportunity to get away and do something great with the whole family.  And that’s what we do.

But Christmas is a special thing in my family and it still means a lot to me.

So we timeshift Christmas.  It’s happening this weekend in our household. 

I’ll blog some of it over the next day or two.
