At lunch I decided to check the local news and there is a story about how Costco has their Christmas display up already. Really!!!! In the name of everything holy can we stop already?!
I am not a Grinch. Really, I’m not. It just strikes me as insane that retailers are pushing the holidays this early. What about Halloween? Anyone remember Thanksgiving? How about the crisp Fall days with fresh apple cider and pies? Am I the only one who is getting to the point of “watch this: no gifts at all”?
Okay maybe a bit of a Grinch.
I will say this; there is the chance that this push to ever earlier starts of the holidays will have the result of more people looking at what the holidays are really about. No, they aren’t about the newest T.V., video games or clothes, but about that feeling of love and togetherness. It is there even if you are alone.
In the mean time I will be closing my eyes when confronted with holiday displays. So there!
