Christmas? Naw - Not Yet!

I was driving into town yesterday, skipping through the radio stations, and stopped in SHOCK (surfing the radio, not the Expressway). A station was playing CHRISTMAS MUSIC! Christmas music? It's 73 degrees outside.

Now, this station will play holiday music all season long. Happy, jolly, Burl Ives; poignant, mellow, Nat King Cole (and his ersatz daughter); rockin', boppin', country, jazzy, secular, hymnal season fare for every taste all the way through November and December. I like Christmas Music, but when somebody decides that 'Tis the Season starts after Hallowe'en I can't handle it.

So, I flipped them off.

Our biggest grocery store chain (Wegmans) had Christmas decorations on display before Halloween...I can't stand it!

I shudder to think it ...

In my book, the Christmas season doesn't start until early December, although you can catch me singing Christmas tunes all year long... :-D

I agree, Esther!

OK, I was singing Christmas songs a couple of weeks ago. But I was alone! And, not visiting my oddness on unsuspecting strangers! :-)
