Hey Y'all!

Merry Christmas guys!


What's that you say? It's only the start of November?

But... but.. it must be Christmas.

All the stores have Christmas things out.

People are starting to put out their Christmas lights.

That means it's Christmas, right?



It's not even Remembrance Day.

i've insisted that we avoid any Xmas decorations or trees in our place until after Thanksgiving. besides, i'm Jewish, so i can boycott the whole damn corporate excercise if i want to.

We never took our lights down last year. We're so white trash. But we're ready for Christmas already! Whoo!

I know I almost started hyperventilating the other day due to the immense consumer pressure I was feeling.

Then I got home cleaned out the gutters and thought 'should I be putting up the lights?' So I started going over which weekends I would be able to get back up the ladder to put them up if I didn't and finally I decided damn too much effort - they will go up around the end of November - weather be dammed! :)

Plus my friend and I have already decided this is going to be a used or homemade Christmas. Nothing new! Which should be interesting.

Dilling, I just miss the excitement of oooh, Christmas stuff is going up, it's getting close! Now it's...oh. Christmas stuff is going up. Meh.
I think it ruins all the fun.

Minijonb, I'd support you in a boycott! But, yeah, I'm not sure decorations need to go up before (US) Thanksgiving. A month(ish) is enough, no? Because, really, the earlier the stores start putting up their IT'S THE SEASON! stuff, the more it feels like it's all about buying stuff. Bummer.

She Likes Purple, oh I think if I had a house I'd probably keep my lights up just to save myself the bother, for sure. In fact, the older my parents get, the more I try to convince them to just keep em up! So you go girl! ; )

Likalia, it does feel kind of pressured eh? And I figure if you're up there doing the gutters you may as well stick up the lights. Doesn't mean you have to turn them on yet, just means you're organized!
: ) But, yeah, usually my Dad and I find a semi-non rainy day near the end of Nov to stick their lights up and usually it's cold and rainy and dark and that's just part of the fun!
I love the idea of your handmade or used Christmas...sounds great. I thought of telling my family we should just not do gifts and just enjoy being together but thought I'd not bother suggesting it since I wasn't sure it'd go over too well. ; )

McGone, you can share my bah humbuggery as long as you don't share my buggery.

Sorry. Couldn't resist.
; )

We spotted christmas chocolates in our local supermarket a MONTH ago.

My other half looked at me with eyes like saucers, and we both shook our heads in disbelief.

Jonathan, it's pretty crazy. My question is how to we make it better? I've given some polite complaint letters to local malls and department stores just saying "hey, dude? Not cool man."

Well, I probably put it a little better than that! ; )

Thanks Jenn!
