So I went to Michael's craft store last week...that makes the date around Nov. 6th. They had a huge section of Christmas stuff, a little annoying, but i'm okay with that. I have no problem with people buying Christmas decorations early. But what really got me, was that the store was playing Christmas music over their intercom. I mean really???? Christmas music on November 6th...just kind of bugs me. Saturday I went for a walk and saw two houses putting up Christmas lights. And today driving through downtown Salem, I noticed that the Christmas wreaths and "seasons greetings" signs were already up on the light posts. Can't we just enjoy Thanksgiving first? The unspoken rule should be, no Christmas music, no lights, no decorations until the day after Thanksgiving. (okay, i'll allow it on Thanksgiving day, if you're really antsy) But seriously people....it takes a bit of the specialness (is that a word) out of Christmas when you start celebrating it in July!
