Is it me or has the year gone by like… REALLY quickly?

Just yesterday i thought it was June, So now its time to start thinking about the holidays. I know, I know, Your probably going like “But Christmas is still 4 months away!”. But i’ve learned something. Make a “Draft I” of your christmas list 3-4 months in advance. And when mid-august roll’s around (2 weeks!) is when to start keeping it a little bit more towards the “middle” of your mind. Whats going to be hot this year? Well. I’m not sure. That’ll get revealed as we roll closer and closer into the “Holiday madness!” series. But here’s a few things you might want to start thinking about it the next 30-60 days:

  • Holiday Decorations. There is NOTHING worse than getting 30 days until Christmas everyone is going nuts, The stores are full of people and the shelves’s are being emptyed as quick as they become full. So now is a good time to start thinking about what you wan’t on the tree. “Bulb decorations or ball decorations?, Colored lights or Clear white lights?, “Iccle lighting on the exterior or not? (this is a great time to do a check of the exterior to make sure everything will go up without a hitch so that your not doing it later in 65F weather)
  • Start the cleaning. You might have already cleaned up but if you haven’t this would be a good time to do it. Try to decided where your going to put things when its time to start putting the decorations up. (personally we do this mid-late November), Also try to estimate how many outlet’s you’ll need, Including things such as TV’s (As our TV is next to the tree most years) So that you can buy power strips and extension cords.
  • Decorate safely. You don’t want to start your tree on fire so plan safely. Don’t try to save a few dollars by straining cords or using broken / old cords, Cords older than 5 years shouldn’t be used and should be disposed of.

This is just the start. Marklog will be going into “Holiday Alert 2007!” this year. So stay tuned to Late August – Early September for alot of changes rolling around! -mark
