I can't believe it.
It's happening already.
The ginormous space being cleared out at Macy's.
The return of "Cranberry Splash" Sierra Mist (thank you, thank you, thank you God...or Pepsi, or Coke, you know, whomever...for this amazing soda--that one's for you, Keely!)
The inconspicuous display of holiday colored sprinkles.
And, these words, which actually came out of my mouth..."Mom, what would you like for Christmas?"
Helllloooo, me!! WTH!!! are you doing talking about Christmas in September, and why is Macy's preparing for "The Holiday's" (which, btw, I'll just refer to as Christmas, feel free to insert your own celebrated holiday in it's place, if you wish), and why is (but, oh thank you!!) Pepsi, or Coke, or whomever (or would it be whoever?) already releasing their Christmas soda (well, guess it falls under Thanksgiving, too...it being cranberry and all)??!!!
It is still (finally??) over 80 degrees here...Christmas is/should be a distant thought!
Crazy...seems to start earlier and earlier every year.
Soon, we really will be celebrating Christmas in July!
Heck, I just might start leaving up my Christmas decorations year round.
I love Christmas, I love it all...the reason for the season, the gifting (giving and...um...especially receiving!!), the smells and the baking and the decorations and the family gatherings and Santa and snowmen and Christmas Eve Midnight mass...I could go on and on.
But, really...it's September.
