Enough already!

Ok people, listen up. This is THANKSGIVING WEEK. It is NOT the start of the Christmas season. That happens on FRIDAY. FIVE MORE DAYS. You can't handle FIVE MEASLY MORE DAYS???

I am at peace with the fact that the stores put their Christmas stuff out in August, but...

The Christmas decorations are already up (and lit up at night) on the streetlights in town. My neighbors have their Christmas tree up and decorated (as a caveat, I will forgive them for this if I happen to notice that their soldier son is home for Thanksgiving, because that will signify to me that they are doing Christmas and Thanksgiving at the same time this year). The radio station I listen to at work has been playing Christmas music for over a week. Home Depot is playing nonstop Christmas music.

ONE FREAKING HOLIDAY AT A TIME, PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm all for shopping early, in fact I've already got half of mine done, but this whole "let's celebrate the season already" thing is getting out of control...

Okay, well then I guess I won't tell you that all the Christmas stuff makes me happy. Even though it is ridiculously early, I just get a nostalgic happy hot chocolate Charlie Brown kinda feeling this time of year. Thanksgiving isn't exactly a great time of year for a vegan so I just prefer to skip right over that day and move on up to Christmas. Of course, I'm an atheist so I have no business celebrating Christmas (as I have been told many times) but a Martha type has to take every excuse to make stuff and wrap packages that she can!
