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.
