I looked out this morning to a BLANKET of snow on the ground! Not only that, but those huge lumpy flakes were still coming down in a sea of white. In a way, I guess it marked the start of another season that was, for me at least, kind of exciting.
That, however, is not what the outrage is about. Oh no. I turned the radio on to catch the weather, and the song that was playing was “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”!!! What is this?? Need I remind Cozi 101.5 or whatever station was on, it is NOVEMBER 14 today!
Does anybody else live by the cardinal rule of NO Christmasy things until the day after Thanksgiving? I always thought that was a fact of life – in the list of things you just don’t do, like waking a sleeping baby, or drinking that ‘special’ chinese tea away from a bathroom, or wearing stilettos (there was no 2nd part to that last one)..
Why? because it’s Christmas, and when it’s stretched out, it loses some of it’s meaningfulness. And let’s face it – one can only withstand Celine Dion’s overplayed version of “All I Want For Christmas Is You” for so long. And the Chipmunks for that matter.
So there’s my little protest to the craziness that is starting already. Just because Wal-Mart is doing it with their commercialism shenanigans doesn’t mean everyone has to do it.
