"Already?" I thought to myself as I walked the aisles of TOYS r US with Jackson yesterday.
His GramCaryn had sent him some birthday money for his 6Th birthday arriving on the 14Th of this month, so we walked the aisles of the toy store looking for his perfect Lego present.
The child is very into Lego's, and he has so much patience, sitting there putting together Mars Maximum or Mars Mission that has 435 pieces and is geared for children ages 7-14. But he can do it.
Anyways, as I'm walking thru the aisle with him, I can hear the stores music playing overhead-barely- but from what I could make of the tunes, would you believe it's playing Christmas music already?
Come on, I love Christmas, it's so magical. But part of the magic is the essence of waiting. The orange spot of the Holiday is what makes it even more special. If they put it out on the shelves too soon, to me the excitement is slightly lost. Talking now about the entire religious meaning of Christmas, if they wanted to debut it as present, than perhaps more of a documentary of Mary's 9month pregnancy with her baby Jesus? Air the specials on the TLC baby channel network. There's a thought. You want to put the tinsel out now? Then lets start hearing more about the religious side...it's only fair.
I just think the material side of Christmas is starting too soon. I think it's best to start the Christmas music after Thanksgiving. Why should Thanksgiving get screwed because people aren't as patient as my 6 year old son that enjoys putting together 435 piece Lego's? Why the rush rush rush already? Poor Thanksgiving. If Thanksgiving was a child he'd be the middle one because he's totally getting screwed over the baby of the family, Christmas. Poor guy. He never even had a chance to show off his cornucopia's. Why should he have to share his holiday with Christmas? They're not twins!
Already the Reindeer's are making paw marks in the yards full of leaves.
Thanksgiving should go on strike! Where are his rights?
I mean it was hard enough seeing the Christmas decorations go up along with the Halloween decorations, but now Thanksgiving is going to get the screw factor because people are too anxious.
SHOW ME THE THANKSGIVING DECORATIONS! SHOW ME THANKSGIVING MUSIC! Or at least create some so we don't have to go from hallo's weenie to Christmas tiny Tim drum drums.
Slow down, enjoy what fall brings, and part of what fall brings I believe, is Thanksgiving. We might as well surpass fall and go straight to the snow flurried Christmas winter season, because that's what it seems like is going on.
Already Christmas music playing on a Chicago radio station, 93.9.
Already Christmas wreaths on display to buy, have the Halloween decorations come down yet from within your home?
Already Snow scheduled for Thursday in our forecast-OH NO SOUL!

Short and brief..I'm nursing a slight headache from last nights outing. But it was worth it. I will try and write about it, but as of right now I'm off to a belated Halloween party to celebrate things backwards. Maybe that will slow down the rush rush of Christmas.
Yes, I did have my beers last night, and I still didn't smoke. I think I'm almost there!!!
