I went to Cost Plus the other day to pick up some Torani syrup
(for my hot chocolate).
As I entered the store, I was blinded with a sea of gold, silver, green and red...
yes, that's right, CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS!!!
Something is utterly wrong with selling Christmas in September.
I remember when I was growing up, they didn't start selling Christmas
until after Thanksgiving....
and over the years the "start of Christmas"
has slowly crept back to where the displays
are now up and running in September...
and I am ignoring them.
Well, today is the first of October...
the day the Boo Boxes come down from the attic.
I do not, will not, and utterly refuse to put up my Halloween decor
until we have entered the tenth month.
A person must have conviction, right?
