before I threw up in the cosmetic isle. Christmas trees in September,
seriously?! I don’t know about you but it seems like every year it happens earlier and earlier. Can’t we do Halloween and Thanksgiving first and then worry about Christmas? When stores do this it makes me sick of Christmas even before it arrives.
I love Christmas, it’s my favorite holiday but come on, is this
really necessary? What’s the point? Do people really buy bulbs, decorations, trees and gift wrap in September? Do their shopping lists indicate that they need a Halloween costumes for their kids, candy corn, toilet paper and oh yeah, new ornaments for the tree? They must buy this stuff early otherwise the stores wouldn’t give up precious floor space for the items.
If you are one of these “Christmas in September” people, knock it off. You are ruining other Holidays for everyone else. And I swear to God that if I see you buying Christmas stuff before it’s time, they will be calling for a clean-up in whatever isle you are in at the time!
This morning in the local paper I noticed a one page spread from
Ashley Furniture. With the purchase of $500 or more in furniture you can get a “Coach” handbag. These purses are valued at $500. Would you ever even consider making a large purchase on something like furniture just to get a purse with a
fancy name? I suppose any guys that were planning on furniture shopping this week will just hold off until the sale is over so they aren’t troubled by having a handbag in the backseat on their way home.
I mixed up my first batch of ghost cookies already and my
Halloween decorations are up complete with giant fake spider webs on the front porch, but I do have one regret. In my kitchen I have French doors leading to the deck and there are fifteen glass panels on each door. Typically I buy window clings such as pumpkins and place one in each panel. This year I couldn’t find any cute pumpkins so I opted for scary eyeballs. Now I constantly feel like I’m being watched.
The kids say our decorations aren’t scary enough. They want the
bloody handprints and the mummies that come to life when someone walks past or the bag of rats that wiggles when touched. I told them I would look into some scarier decorations yesterday when I was at Wal-Mart. Unfortunately I was so taken back by the Christmas trees that I forgot to look.
See Christmas really is ruining Halloween.
