What's your first sign of Christmas 2013?
 
It's that time again!

A couple of weeks ago, at my office place, someone brought in a new Hallmark Keepsake Dreambook 2013, and left it in the waiting room. It really caught my eye, but I didn't touch it at first, because I wanted to leave it for the customers stopping by, but someone else brought it back to the break room for employees, and I must admit, I've been flipping through it every day on my lunch break! It looks like this, for the record. It's a real beauty.

And it struck me, this is my first sign of Christmas for the 2013 year! That's been over the last few days. But just today, I went over to Hobby Lobby, and found they were JUST STARTING to pull out Christmas decorations and beginning to put them out for sale!

It always feels like around this time of year, as we approach the 2nd (and best) half of the year, that you may start to encounter your first glimpse of Christmas for the year!

So what's your first sign of Christmas 2013?!? (or have you seen one yet?)

Oh, good thread!

My first sign was several things. The first was when our local zoo announced the dates for the Zoo Christmas Lights. Also, we just set the date for our school Christmas play....those are signs it is coming for me!

Wonderful thread!!

Mine would be the Dream Book, as well!! I picked mine up last month, and know exactly which ornaments I will pick up at their CIJ open house :)

I was also at a gift store & flower shop in the country that does many holiday activities, and saw a sign there that they do sleigh rides with Santa over Christmas time!!
Hope I'm not too old for that, because it sounds like a lot of fun!!

My first real sign, was last week at the beach. There is a huge Christmas shop that we always go to while we're there. I buy ornaments and Christmas gifts. I enjoy just walking through the store and browsing as well.

This thread really makes me feel excited! Well so far I think my first sign for this year is spotting this thread!! LOL ! For me it's a sure sign that we are on our way!!

It's thrilling to know that over the next few months the signs will get more and more plentiful for all of us. I am going to love keeping up with this thread and seeing the momentum build......

First sign of Christmas..
 
It might have been getting the bill for the ornaments I order each year from The Danbury Mint..lol. Listening to "new" albums I've collected from the library and checking this site of course!:smile:
