Tree Before Thanksgiving? – Modern Marriage Moments

Does your Christmas tree go up BEFORE or AFTER Thanksgiving? In this You Tube Modern Marriage Moment  video Brandon and Stephanie “discuss” the question of putting up their Christmas tree before Thanksgiving. You will see that they worked it out after Stephanie surprised Brandon by actually putting the tree up without him knowing about him. Needless to say, it didn’t go well. Even so, they came to a peaceable place of agreement.

A Tree Before Thanksgiving?

This is not something that either of us would do to the other. Some things are best left without making them into a surprise. But I confess that we did put up our tree before Thanksgiving one year. (It was by mutual consent.) Our Son and daughter-in-law were going out of the country right after Thanksgiving. So we put up our tree before they arrived at our home. We celebrated Thanksgiving one day and Christmas the next. And the next day they were off to Africa.

It was a busy, but fun time together. Celebrating those holidays with those we love can always make it all the more special. We hope it’s a fun, and special time for you and your spouse too. But most of all, we pray it’s a blessed time with the Lord in the forefront of your thoughts. May your Thanksgiving and your marriage be blessed!
