Christmas Wrapping Day!

Today I did one of my most favorite activities of the year – wrapping Christmas presents!  I have always loved present wrapping day.  In fact, I love it so much that when I was in middle school and high school, my aunt always gave me my most favorite Christmas gift early – around Thanksgiving.  It was an assortment of Christmas bows, tags, bags, and paper for me to use on my wrapping day.  I still get excited just thinking about it!  Now I look forward to the opening of the Container Store’s “Gift Wrap Wonderland” with the same giddy anticipation.  (I’m not kidding.  I put it on my calendar and start calling the store about a week ahead of time to see if they are ready early by any chance.)

My wrapping day is always the same – I set up my “workspace” in front of the tree with paper, bows, tape, scissors, tags, and sharpies.  Then I pop Home Alone in the DVD player and wrap away.  I have it down to a science, usually finishing up the last gift as the end credits roll for Home Alone 2.

It’s a great day.  I’m already looking forward to doing again next year!  Merry Christmas!
