Does it seem like Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year???

I was driving my son home from school today and we drove past a bank. They were working on the roof of the building and Trevor asked me what they were doing. I look over and I couldn't believe it, Christmas lights were going up.

Ok I know the day following Halloween is traditionally when the malls start decorating and I can kind of handle that but given that Halloween is still 2 days away and I have seen lights going up and a Santa commercial on t.v. (last night while watching the hockey game, nearly fell off the couch) I am thinking that in a few years we will start decorating for Christmas after labor day weekend!!!!

Now considering that I make a living from selling handcrafed Christmas cards you would think that I would be ok with this but I just find that we push too much of the commerical Christmas junk and not enough about what the season is actually about!

Anyway just my two cents......off to make more Christmas cards, lol.

Cheers.

I feel like all the holidays come quicker and quicker each year! I have barely begun to celebrate the 4th of July... and Halloween is tomorrow. I'm glad it isn't just me!
