I love Christmas. It is my favorite holiday, but it is not even halfway through October, Halloween is still two weeks away, and there are already Christmas trees up in Walmart. Is nothing sacred, anymore? I love Christmas but I am not yet ready to deal with the hassle of buying gifts and baking cookies. I am thrilled to half a month off for winter break to take time and joy the holiday. As soon as it becomes November, you can bring on the holidays, and after you have eaten on Thanksgiving you can jam to Christmas music all you want. It is just too early to start the holiday season. Two more weeks of fall and pumpkins and then Santa and his elves can take over.
