Our season officially kicks off on Thanksgiving Day. We have what the humans have affectionately begun to refer to as "A Non-Traditional Traditional Thanksgiving". Instead of having the normal Thanksgiving turkey and dressing, each child chooses their favorite food. Then mom cooks one dish per person. We usually watch the National Dog Show before lunch and then the Dallas game and Christmas movies afterward.
Of course, with this being mine and Kudzu's FIRST Thanksgiving and Christmas season, we are especially excited!!!
This year we are going to start a new tradition on Thanksgiving afternoon: We are going to go to a CHRISTMAS tree farm and pick out our very own TREE. Now I've never heard of having a tree in the house before, but that sounds like a good tradition right there. After the tree has been chosen, we will ride over to a neighboring town to see their entire park lit up with Christmas displays. And from there, the fun is just getting started.
The following day, the humans "deck the halls". I'm not sure what that means, but from what I gather they will make the inside of the house pretty with seasonal decorations. That is also the day they will decorate the outside of The Love Shack. Something about hanging lights on it and all? Sounds strange but the peoples are excited about it so I guess we should be too! One of mom's favorite traditions on that day is decorating inside and out wearing their PAJAMAS!! Bwah har har!! Silly humans.
Mom has already started taking lots more pictures of us for what she calls "Christmas cards". So far she hasn't gotten one she is "in love with".. pray for us, furiends... cause that means a lot more time with the flashy monster! Here are some from last year.. before Kudzu and me were here...

Mom is so excited about Christmas and is wanting to decorate something - anything really - so bad, I told her it was ok to go ahead and make my blog "merry and bright". So today or this week sometime be on the lookout for the premiere of CHRISTMAS with Boondocks and The Love Shack Pack.
We'll share more with y'all about some of our family's favorite Christmas traditions in the weeks to come. We'd love to hear some of yours too!! Please share.
