OK, Friends. Here we go again.
For the 7th consecutive year here at My Merry Christmas (and the 10th year overall)...... another year of countdowning begins!

Here are the statistics since we began the Season countdown idea 9 years ago:
2004 = 1,217 posts (Christmas.com) = 3.3 posts per day.
2005 = Over 2,700 posts (Christmas.com) = over 7.4 posts per day.
2006 = 3,756 posts (The Christmas Place) = 10.3 posts per day.
2007 = 1,957 posts (My Merry Christmas, where the thread was not launched until July) = 12.1 posts per day.
2008 = 5,103 posts = 13.9 posts per day.
2009 = 8,231 posts = 22.6 posts per day.
2010 = 16,226 posts = 44.5 posts per day.
2011 = 31,091 posts = 85.2 posts per day!
2012 = 39,183 posts = 107.1 posts per day!!
(The growth really is unbelievable, Folks! Just when I think we couldn't possibly break the record again, we do. A per-day increase EVERY year since the begining!)


And now here we are ready to go again, at the start of 2013.


A word of explanation. We are running a dual countdown in this thread - one for Christmas Day and one for the start of the Christmas Season (November 13).
Most all of us have agreed that we look forward to the entire Christmas Season rather than just to Christmas Day.
Why November 13? No reason, really. It just seems about the right time to regard the season as arriving. That date is exactly 6 weeks before Christmas Day and is about the time the country at large is beginning to really get into the holiday spirit. Most of the stores have decorated. And starting the season then gives us exactly 50 days (Nov 13 through Jan 1) to enjoy being "within" the season, giving it a depth that's lacking with just the Christmas Day count by itself.

We also enjoy noting special "milestones" along the way (see the chart below).

And here's one thing you CERTAINLY don't want to miss!
Many of us gather here on the evening of November 12 for our annual hour by hour, then minute by minute countdown to the start of the Season at midnight Eastern Time. It's something we really look forward to and is truly great fun!

Allright, Everyone!
Climb aboard once again and enjoy reading the posts/following the count which begins today at 316 to the Season and 358 to Christmas Day.


Here is a handy list of our Christmas Season and Christmas Day countdown milestone markers.

CHRISTMAS SEASON MILESTONE MARKER CHART
January 17 = Day 300
February 12 = 1/4 mark
March 15 = 1/3 mark
April 27 = Day 200
May 15 = 1/2 mark
July 14 = 2/3 mark
August 05 = Day 100
August 14 = 3/4 mark
October 07 = 90 percent (The Home Stretch begins)
November 13 = THE SEASON ARRIVES!

CHRISTMAS DAY MILESTONE MARKER CHART
February 28 = Day 300
March 26 = 1/4 mark
April 26 = 1/3 mark
June 8 = Day 200
June 26 = 1/2 mark
August 25 = 2/3 mark
Sept 16 = Day 100
Sept 25 = 3/4 mark
Nov 18 = 90 percent
December 25 = MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Can't thank you enough for doing this every year and so efficiently, Crown !! xo
