Raise your hand if you have holiday fever!!!!! (But don't want to hear the Xmas shit just yet.)
I do! I do! I do! (Nevermind the cow costume. ha!)
Oh gosh friends..... I adore the holidays. I always think fall is my favorite time of year, and then that holiday feeling whooshes over me and I just can't help but turn into a huge sappy cheesehead!! Seriously, I find myself crying at radio commercials on like, the soft pop station, and I NEVER want it to end.
I was shopping with a friend (actually, the lovely lady raising the roof above on my right), and there was Xmas music playing in retail shops already!! Although I luuuuuuv me some Xmas tunes (like psycho listen to them 24/7 in December), doesn't it seem just a tad early? When did Xmas start earlier than Veteran's day? Not that I'm complaining, because "what the world needs now is love sweet love" and that fuzzy feeling sure helps that, but it just seemed a bit tacky. I mean, can we have a bit of a break after the invasion of the political ads??? Can we just adjust to this stupid time and light difference before jumping into the next crazy retail obsession???
I am all for starting to celebrate the holidays early, considering you only get about 1 month of real fuzzy warm feeling time per year. But man, let me recover from my Halloween hangover first! Then I need at least a month of fattening myself up and gorging on my favorite food, Thanksgiving. Then, that glorious day at the end of November, we can buy a smelly tree that sparks the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year.
What do you think friends? Is it too early for retail Xmas pushing? Or should I just embrace this merriment for 2 months now?
And now for your viewing pleasure, a wonderful pic of my amazoid friend Julie. (I had to Julie! This pic rocks!)
What are your thoughts????
