  • Good lords........I've heard Christmas tunes on the radio for commercials! WTH!

    People are getting ready to jing-jing-jingling in the Christmas spirit and Giving of Thanks day is not even here just yet!

    Christmas candy is already in the stores as well! We have the cooler weather here, sure!

    But with 80 degree weather predicted next week for a few days, Nope.......can't get in the mood so call me Scrooge-Etta!

  • One of our local stores has been selling Christmas paper and decorations since July. It is insanity.

  • Christmas has come early as well to southern Portugal. Scary cause it's been in the low 80's here and I cannot even imagine getting into the Christmas spirit yet! We were at the mall over the Halloween weekend and saw hoards of people already in line waiting to get their Christmas gifts wrapped (it's free if purchased at their store). Must admit that it's hard to get in the Christmas spirit over here anyway cause I associate Christmas with cold weather. Hard to be jolly and send out Christmas cards decorated with snow covered trees, etc. when you're walking around in t-shirts and driving with the windows downs. Ho Ho Ho... forget the eggnog and pass me another Bahama Mama:)
