Christmas starts in October now

thSome retail stores are getting ready to launch the earliest Black Friday ever.  It’s enough to make you want to hurl.

So far I don’t feel too bad about Christmas this year.  Of course the onslaught of Christmas ads has not yet begun.  Usually by the time December 25th arrives we are so tired of Christmas and its marketing madness that it has lost all meaning.

It is unusual but I am kind of looking forward to Christmas this year.  I hope that doesn’t get ruined before it arrives.
