A few days after Thanksgiving, we decorate our home for Christmas. That evening we always go out for pizza. It started when my kids were little, and I was too tired from decorating that evening to make dinner so we went out and grabbed a pizza. We've done that every year since and my kids look forward to kicking off the Christmas season with pizza.
