    Here in France 6 or 7 years ago, they tried to have people celebrating Halloween, but it didn't work much because it's not a french tradition. It was just commercial. Now, only young people celebrate Halloween, most of the time in primary schools, to get candy or to illustrate the english course.
    Anyway let me tell you about a tradition in my area, which I knew when I was a child. In my grandmother's village, close to Germany, there was a night called "witches'night" It took place in the late days of may. During that night, witches and spirits where supposed to visit earth. People curved beet root, put a candle inside and put the roots outside their windows. Village teenagers where playing many tricks during that night. It looked like Halloween in spring, didn't it ?

    HI Happy Holidays! I am someone new but of the same heart as you all. I usually start way early. I love Christmas! This year the Christmas spirit hit me on October 2. LOL I started listening to Christmas music. The reason for that is that I am deaf and have a cochlear implant that makes me hear. Christmas music is what I hear best because of my brains memory of it. I also was sitting at the computer writing and article for our cochlear implant support group's newsletter. The article went into that direction and there you have it. I have been in the mode since then. I am decorating right now in between clients (I give in home nursing care for the elderly and those in need). I leave the house to go to work shortly. Gee I am not getting anything done because I found this web site. Look for more of my Christmas spirit in the up coming days.

    It depends on the year when I start feeling the Christmas spirit. I'm only now starting to feel the holiday spirit. I'm now listening to Christmas music on a fairly regular basis. My kids aren't shy about telling me, "it's too early"!

    We're getting light snow and cold temps lately in Michigan, so that make it seem close to Christmas.

    Anyone breaking about the Christmas DVDs?

    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    I love your avatar...What a classic movie A Christmas Story is! Interesting username, any certain significance?

    DW put on a couple of Christmas tapes for our 1-year-old to watch yesterday as we put out a few decorations. Tonight we actually watched Christmas Vacation, which is always a good time! I love that movie!

    Again, welcome!

    I feel it when people turn on their outdoor Christmas lights.
