Tentation


The Christmas stuff has been for sale for quite a while. And however hard I try to resist temptation, I usually fail dismally.

Les décos de Noël sont en vente depuis quelques temps. J'ai beau tout faire pour résister à la tentation... c'est trop dur...

These rich colors are a welcome sight and quite different from (our) traditional red and green. These are just luscious!

Bises,

It's about time to get seerious about plans and preparations for Christmas. . . I have everyone beat on that as I keep my artificial tree up all year so I can enjoy the one of a kind ornaments that adorn it. Now, all I need is snow. . . outside of course!

Me too! I've already started my shopping which is good because it's already getting crazy with people doing the same.

I have not yet succumbed to purchasing any Christmas items yet. I'm more focused on Thanksgiving right now. :)

Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year. I am busy making Cards. MB

Leif Hagen said...

I'm going to try really, really hard not to buy any more Christmas stuff this year ...

je suis pas un fan des sapins de noel, mais par contre je craque pour tous les chocolats de noel

Like my dad used to say: "I've got plenty of 'will' power. I 'will' buy lots of Christmas stuff. It's 'won't power that I'm lacking!"

You're funny. Interesting that there is so much gold here - and I see a bit of red and green. Maybe there is more red in other parts of the shop? Or maybe this a shop of la haute coutre?

Jacob said...

My dear Ciel: I'm so sorry that you feel so poorly! It is no fun going to work under such conditions. But I don't think you need a new battery; rather, I think the batteries you have need a charge. Maybe a glass of wine, a good night's rest, and some medication would do the trick?

Much more delectable looking ornaments than what you would find in the average Walmart here. Very tempting treats indeed..

I live near a shopping mall, but don't dare visit; it's much easier to have it shipped to the house. I've started a list for my wife, but that's the extent.

I'm such a sucker for ornaments. My favorite shopping day is the day after Xmas when everything is 50-70% off.

C'est ton âme d'enfants qui refait surface, il faut bien tous ces scintillements pour se réchauffer.

My weakness is Christmas music. Somehow, every year I find a new rendition of a song that I must have.

It has looked a lot like Christmas in the stores here too! It's hard to resist such happiness. :)
