Mixing Old Fashioneds
One store at the mall has had Christmas stuff out since August. Now, here in South Louisiana, it's about 100 degrees (with the heat index) in August. Last thing I want to see is a faux-snow covered fake tree. It just irritates the crap out of me. The Christmas stuff picked up in early October, and is now in full swing since the Halloween stuff went away on the weekend...before actual Halloween. At least it's getting kind of cooler outside...finally!
The whole early Christmas stuff has really put me off the fall holidays entirely for the past several years--really, since I started working full time. Before, I wouldn't notice because I was knee-deep in studying for exams right up till Christmas. Now it is my least favorite time of the year due to the crazed, stresed people and the rampant commercialism.
How funny are you guys...I thought this thread was going to be all joyfull and make you want to deck the halls with boughs of holly. Nope not here...bah humbug~I Love It. Lets have Thanksgiving first.

That's all folks!
I'm on the "No Christmas stuff til after Thanksgiving bandwagon." That's the way it was when we were little and we liked it! Damn kids nowadays all about me, me, me, gifts for me, where's my present, blah, blah, blah. You're getting a lump of coal and that's it.

My neighbor put his lights up yesterday, just to beat the snow. He hasn't turned them on. There is one radio station that started playing all Christmas music 24 hours a day on Monday. :rolleyes

We don't have any lights around us up yet, but I've caught the bug . I've been listening to music, happy to see the Hershey Kisses jingle song. There has been a few Christmas commercials already on tv. Wierd, but it's fine to me.
That's all folks!
My cat feels the same as I do right now:
So I guess this is the wrong thread to admit that I did all my Christmas shopping today?
*runs out of thread*
Its getting cold here, it was 0 degrees over night and when I went out to my car at 5:30 this morning I was freezing and had to scrape the ice off of my windows. I just need more cash so I can buy presents. Going to go big this year.
