Let’s Start the Celebrations

He clipped a piece of the decoration and stood back to admire his work.

You do realise that Christmas is almost a month away, right?” she asked, setting the shopping bags down.

“Yes, but life’s too short to wait for a celebration. And there’s no better time than the present.”

A half-hour later he was glad that he’d hung up the mistletoe.
