Time for Orange

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?

Yes, the best month of the year! I should bring out my few decorations, too!

I'm with you Karen! NO Halloween until October. Thanksgiving can be celebrated all year! And absolutely NO Christmas until December 1st (actually, I don't decorate my home until December 10th).
