me: “I’m going to start decorating for Christmas. I won’t put the tree up yet, but this place could use some color and cheer, damn it.”

the BF: “I don’t like it. What happened to your whole ‘No Christmas ’til after Thanksgiving’ rule?”

me: “Yeah, I know. I’m over that. I realized that I love the holidays, it’s my favorite time of year. So why limit it to a month? Why not enjoy it as long as possible?”

the BF: “You’re nuts.”

me: “Irrelevant. And I’m not the one humming ‘The Christmas Song,’ am I?”
