I go out to get my mail today and what do I see staring up out of my little black mailbox but a Christmas ad from the local Micheals.
I stared at the ad. I look at the nice pre-lighted fake Christmas trees displayed on the front page of the ad. They also had displayed some nice ornament sets, which were on sale.
Then I realized…My GOD it’s not even Halloween yet! Who on earth puts out Christmas ads at Halloween?
And the grocery stores are in on it too. As I was shopping the other day for thinks like eggs, bread and milk, lo and behold in the dairy case I spotted several pints of Halloween egg nog! I thought maybe it was specially dyed orange or black or something appropriately Halloweeny, but to my surprise when I got home it was regular eggnog in a black and orange pumpkin festooned carton.
I suppose next it’ll be holly and ivy and poinsettas in the mall before Thanksgiving. Oy…
I think I"ll go drink some of that Halloween egg nog now and write out some of my Hallo-Thanksgivi-Christmas cards now. WHo’s with me?
