Usually I have a rule around my house that there is to be absolutely NO Christmas decor, music, or talk until AFTER Thanksgiving. It makes me a little sad that Thanksgiving sometimes gets the shaft, with Christmas constantly peeking over its shoulder asking, "Is it my turn yet?" Be patient Christmas, your time is coming (and it will be lovely), but lets let Thanksgiving have its turn!
I'm grateful for Thanksgiving, and I never want it to be overlooked or forgotten in this house. I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving to deck my halls for Christmas. That's when my Indie Christmas station is played on Pandora, when I make hot chocolate, when the tree goes up, and when I introduce my new Christmas printables on the blog.
However, this year Thanksgiving is a little later on the calendar, and although my Thanksgiving/Fall decor is still up, I've broken my no-Christmas-music-until-after-Thanksgiving-rule once or twice. I've also made some new Christmas printables, in prep for the next holiday. Since I anticipate myself busily hanging stockings with care this upcoming Friday -- instead of blogging -- I thought I'd share my free Christmas printables a little early as well.
Forgive me Thanksgiving. I haven't forgotten you, but Christmas is coming, and I want to be prepared.
So, go forth and print my friends. . . maybe just wait to decorate with these bad boys until after your Turkey is stuffed.
Click on the images to be taken to the download page. The first three printables are 16x20s (can also be used as 8x10s). The last image is a Christmas banner I made for my adorable sister-in-law. She designed it, and I thought it was so adorable, it should be shared! The image will take you to the folder that contains the 10 pages to download in order to print and make the banner.
Have a wonderful holiday season!
