Some elves start decking their halls before the Thanksgiving turkey is barely cool (or, as I've heard, some insane elves start even earlier).
Lazy elves scoff at such energetic enterprise.
Why buy a tree early when you can enjoy an empty corner for free?
Want to do a blessing tree? Great! Grab a branch and just stick it in with the umbrellas, telling yourself you will make the ornaments soon.
Leave the advent stockings in a pile on the chair in the foyer, feeling slightly defeated since the lazy elves didn't purchase treats earlier.
Be sure though to set up nativity scenes around the house in order to keep the focus on where it belongs.
(Which is probably just lazy elf propaganda they tell themselves to not feel guilty about the lack of energy spent on the hanging of garland, ribbons and twinkly lights.)
Take for instance this Lego version:
Nothing like counting down the days to the birth of Jesus like Legos, right?
No, we don't have a tree in every room, or even one tree in one room (yet), but Flo the Flamingo has on her Santa suit.
Isn't that enough?
