Last week as I was driving to work, I was flipping through the radio stations and I heard a Christmas carol. A. Christmas. Carol. Not even the middle of November yet! People on Facebook are posting photos of the Christmas lights on their house, or their Christmas trees all lit up and sparkling with ornaments. WTF?! What about Fall? What about Thanksgiving?! Halloween is over and we just jump ahead two months? Two months! What about all those days in between?
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a Grinch.
Yes, I am. I kinda’ like a quiet evening in front of a glowing tree. Or walking down the street and seeing a row of luminous houses. But, can you imagine if we started celebrating Valentines Day the day after Christmas? Or, started running around in costumes the day after Labor Day?
Let’s wait until the beginning of December to start Christmas. Time moves too quickly as it is. We don’t need to skip over any days (or months…)
