SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) – Christmas is always a hot button issue the day after Halloween. Many people believe it is too early to celebrate Christmas, and some have been waiting all year for the first day of November to celebrate again.
I thought there were only two sides, that was until I met Abbie Kludt.
“I love Christmas! It’s my favorite ‘day’ of the year, but I do celebrate year round,” said Kludt.
Kludt celebrates year round, and she can often be caught decked out in Christmas fashion. From her Christmas scruchie and anklet, to her phone case and the apps on her phone. It is clear Kludt loves Christmas.
It is not often that someone is this obsessed with Christmas, and the only question that comes to mind is why? For Kludt Christmas is about love, family and the joy of gift giving.
“The look on someone’s face is priceless when you give them something they’ve always wanted, or something they could never have or would never buy for themselves,” said Kludt. “And I think that being able to bring someone so much joy is probably the best feeling in the world.”
Whether you believe Christmas should be celebrated the day after Halloween or not. To Kludt, there is no debate that Christmas truly is the best time of the year.
