Fastforward

It seems like the world is in a bit of a time warp.  Saturday, I went out grocery shopping at our Wal-mart Neighborhood Market and they were putting up their wreaths and Christmas trees.

Halloween hasn’t even happened yet!  Could this not wait one more week?  I’m no stranger to the Christmas Creep, and you know I mentally live a couple holidays in the future, but that’s a little silly.  I know that Thanksgiving is pretty entwined with the December holidays in most peoples’ minds, but why doesn’t it get to be celebrated in its own right?  Especially in a grocery store?

I have very real issues with anticipating holidays so long that the day itself goes by in a blur and I end up feeling a bit sad and disappointed when it’s all done.  I can’t help but wonder if the Creep is to blame.

Thoughts?
