Christmas is…coming?


Today was a beautiful, albeit a VERY hot September day.  A 93 degree hot September day.  (I live in Pennsylvania!).

I became bored and wanted to get out of the house and do something.  I thought “Hey, let’s go to Big Lots” as I needed some things.  “Good idea”, my little brain agreed.

I hopped into my car, with the a/c on full blast and drove to my local, dimly lit Big Lots.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Big Lots.  You can find lots of stuff there for cheap – nobody, and I mean NOBODY sells Tide for less.

While meandering through the aisles, what to my wondering eyes should appear?  Christmas decorations.  Wait, what?


It’s not even technically mid-September.  Can’t we get through Halloween first?  Back in the stone age, when I was a youngin’, Christmas stuff didn’t come out until around Thanksgiving.  What happened?  This a trend that I don’t like.  (I realize that this is an ongoing trend, but I can barely find Halloween stuff out yet, but I digress…).


I’m not going to lie, it did kind of excite me.  Christmas is my second favorite holiday, after Halloween.  But, I am just not ready for it.
