seriously?!? i stepped outside this morning, and what do i see? our neighbor across the street from us already has their christmas decorations up! they have giant candy canes, santa and mrs. clause, and a giant ten foot long 'merry christmas' sign in their front lawn. really? is that necessary? yesterday it was over 60 degrees! i dont know about you, but i certainly dont think 'oh, its so nice and warm out, perhaps its time to put out our christmas decorations!' it's one thing for stores to put out their christmas stuff this early (which also makes me frustrated), but they are doing it to try and make some money, so it kind of makes sense for them, those greedy weasels. but for someone to already put up their own decorations outside?!?
now, i must admit, i am a bit of a scrooge when it comes to christmas decorations. i know they have their place, but six weeks early just seems like too much. to put out decorations this early seems very rude to other holidays. what about thanksgiving? i'll bet thanksgiving is sulking in the corner right now feeling altogether ignored! poor thing.
