Things That Annoy Me Thursday: Christmas Already?!
I'm sorry, but it's too early for this in stores. This is the base commissary. All the other stores I frequent are also decked out for Christmas.
I can't get on board with Christmas before Thanksgiving. I just can't.
I should not already be hearing Christmas carols in stores. I like them, but by the time December rolls around, I'm going to be completely irritated by them.
I wish stores would be like, "You know what? We're going to wait until after Thanksgiving," but they claim that early Christmas crap is what the CUSTOMER wants. Really, they just want more money.
I love Christmas, don't get me wrong, but I cannot get excited about it until after I've had my giant turkey dinner. Then I'm like, "It's time," and I go into the garage and pull out the tree. I'm usually attacked by various boxes as I do this, because our garage is a very scary place indeed.
I feel like some of the Christmas spirit is lost because it starts so soon. I'm not as excited to see decorations because they've been up since November. It stinks.
I know some people love starting Christmas early and I'm happy for them.
But for me?
I'll be excited for Christmas AFTER Thanksgiving.
