People, it's not even Thanksgiving yet! Are we just going to skip the "thankful" holiday altogether this year?! For me, it's kind of like wearing white shoes before Easter - you just don't do it!
I don't know why I kid myself EVERY YEAR thinking that I won't have to explain to my children until AFTER Thanksgiving that Santa will be coming soon. Now, we're just barely past Halloween and they're already asking, "When is Santa coming?" Actually, my oldest asks that, and my youngest just screams, "SANTA!!!" at the top of his lungs. BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT TWO YEAR OLD'S DO.
Seriously, people are already putting up Christmas lights in our neighborhood, and I'm all HOLD THE PHONE PEOPLE...NOT EVEN DECEMBER YET! I'm actually one of those people who really enjoys decorating (when the time is right, of course). It's the TAKING IT ALL DOWN part that gives me ulcers. I literally cringe when I think about de-ornamenting the Christmas tree.
What about you? Are you irritated by early Christmas decorations? The sound of Christmas music playing in stores even though Thanksgiving Day hasn't even passed? Or are you ONE OF THEM? Fess up, I promise I won't yell at you - I might, however, send my two year old to your house so YOU can explain why Santa won't be here for another MONTH AND A HALF! :)
