I love holidays.
Truly, I do.
But Christmas decorations and shopping frenzies taking center stage before Thanksgiving?
Or before even Halloween, for that matter?
What’s up with that?
Unless you’re a retailer…
In which case, the thrill of Back to School/Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year all start in July.
Who needs one holiday at a time?
Bring ’em on!
Bring ’em ALL on!!!
(Literally. Everywhere. There’s no escape.)
(Because why the hell not, right? It’s never too early, apparently.)
(T’is the season… for what, exactly? It’s getting to be far too confusing anymore.)
(As efficient as Back to School/Halloween/Christmas shopping all at once might seem, this isn’t what I picture when I think about “one stop shopping”.)
(November isn’t technically off-limits for Christmas cheer… but September and October are definitely pushing it.)
(You know what they say- if the bottle ain’t opening, it ain’t time yet. Try again later. Like after Thanksgiving, perhaps.)
(It’s hard to argue with the fact that Thanksgiving is indeed rooted in violence, but it isn’t typically the turkey doing the carving.)
(On the bright side, if you get it all out of the way now, you may be able to avoid getting out of the house again until well after the New Year!)
(What a great way to cover nearly half a year’s worth of holidays under one convenient catchphrase!)
(Well, at least since Halloween is done and Witchy Poo finally got her turn, Santa is now only trying to push his way in front of one other guy…)
(I think it’s safe to say that turkeys everywhere are sick of playing second fiddle to Santa.)
(And it would appear that the Pilgrims are none too pleased, either…)
(Nor is Grumpy Cat. But then, when is he ever in the mood to celebrate anything?)
(But we all have different opinions, and that’s okay. If Darth Vader is feeling the spirit of the season already, more power to him.)
The magic of the season is undeniable.
Even though I’m not entirely sure what season we’re celebrating at the moment…
All I know is that I’m not quite ready for Christmas music or Christmas shopping…
Or even putting up the Christmas tree.
The insanity of the season can wait.
Right now, I’m perfectly content with relishing the delightful crackle of vibrant autumn leaves beneath my feet on a crisp November morning.
Unless, of course, I’m somehow magically gifted with a one way ticket to a remote tropical island.
Then I’m all for it.
Ho ho ho!
~Happy Saturday, friends! Have a terrific weekend!~
