Happy Holidays, Indeed.

I was going to post about how loathsome it is that people and retailers are throwing up Christmas ('throwing up' in the sense of spewing it all over everything, rather than tossing it in the air and letting in land where it may. Although most of the decorating has no rhyme or reason, so I guess it is in both senses of the phrase. Carry on.) rather than observing the natural order of holidays from Halloween through Veteran's Day and onto Thanksgiving. One neighbor had her lights up on November 5th. She has been adding things to her front lawn daily. Sadly, every time I am prepared to take a picture, she does not have the lights turned on. One day. But then I came home to my December InStyle. It arbitrarily opened to the last page of the Christmas GAP ads (which I take as a sign of good tidings, of course) and saw this:



Suddenly I was humming Christmas tunes and ready to jump headlong into the Christmas rush. Santa, please take note. I'm sure I'm much more deserving than all the other girls sending in the same Christmas wish this year.

Great post. I think you have been an expectionally good girl this year. Of course that is if it was up to me. Sorry we couldn't get together the other weekend. How did your test go? Well cross your fingers that my computer finally comes this week. So that I can be back into the world of blogging on a more regular bases. Yeah!!!!

Yeah, I hate that too. I usually have a starting point of Dec. 1 to start all the Christmas stuff. No one even talks about Thanksgiving any more. Anyway, I heard about this town in Colorado that doesn't even allow the City Hall to display red and green colors or a Christmas tree so as not to offend any others religion. This is such crap. If we really followed this separation of church and state stuff, we wouldn't have Christmas as a Federal Holiday. Other religions celebrate Christmas too.
