Is It Too Soon To Decorate For Christmas?
I really didn't get into Halloween this year and it's my favorite time of the year. I never went to a pumpkin patch or took my annual trip to my local apple orchard. I didn't stock up on my coveted apple butter for the long winter ahead or get my fresh salsa from the pumpkin patch gift shop. I didn't even buy one pumpkin spice latte. I feel like I slept through the month of October.
But, this morning I was in my car feeling sorry for myself and accidentally turned on my car CD player. 'Jingle Bells' started playing and I didn't turn it off.
In fact, I listened to the entire track and kept listening my entire drive to work. I felt this overwhelming sense of Christmas spirit and it's only Nov. 1. It's taking every ounce of discipline I have to not run home after work and deck the halls.
I'm not sure if I'm trying to get ahead of Christmas this year so I don't miss out the way I missed out on my Halloween festivities. All I know is, 'it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas'. I officially have a sickness.
Is it too soon to decorate for Christmas? I'm asking for my friend Santa Claus.
