It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like . . .

Yes, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. In fact it has for a while now. Right after Labor Day all the Halloween stuff went up. But there was also Christmas stuff up as well.

What surprised me was how quickly all of the Halloween items in stores disappeared the next day. I think the Giant food store was the only place that had Halloween candy at half price. Just about everywhere else I went (and I'm talking about the next day) all the candy was gone.

It was of course replaced with Christmas candy. And of course decorations.

So there's a little of what's available right now to buy.

I'm a huge Peanuts fan but really buy the Charlie Brown tree.

Don't the last two things (I don't know how else to refer to them) get you in the Christmas mood. Nothing says Christmas more than a wreath of garish ornaments. And that silver fake tree just puts me in the holiday mood.

It starts earlier every year and I loathe it. (Bah! Humbug!)

I totally agree with you. These days I just shake my head. I've seen stuff out before Labor Day.
