Is it me or does it come earlier every year? The stores pushing Christmas, I mean. When I was a little girl, I couldn't wait until the day after Thanksgiving when the Christmas season officially began. Now, I don't know when it starts! Let me say, I love, love, love Christmas! It's my favorite, but at Wal Mart yesterday, I was a little bit disheartened to see them putting up the Christmas trees. For heaven's sake, people! Halloween decorations are in the opposite isle. I'm putting my foot down right now. I will not start Christmas until Thanksgiving afternoon. Then I'll jump on the bandwagon and plow ahead full force until Christmas Eve. I might shop on Thanksgiving evening (it's easy for my family because we have no extended family in the area and shopping gives us something to do). I will likely do the black Friday thing, as well. Until then, I'm closing my mind to Christmas...unless some cute ornament reaches out and snags me in passing.
