I would like to report that the carton version of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” was on TV on Saturday night – Nov. 5. Doesn’t that seem early? Does TBS always show it that early?
I know a lot of the stores are starting their sales early trying to get people to go ahead and spend but is that speeding up everyone else’s schedule? It seems to me that Christmas is coming faster this year than other years. It seems like people are trying to skip November altogether and just jump right to December.
They’ve already put the Christmas lights on the cacti near our neighborhood – although they haven’t lit them yet. (Thanks Goodness.) And the new Michael Buble Christmas album is already at Target!
I’m not sure if I am feeling the pressure because my mom is currently in the throes of preparing for Fake Christmas – where they visit before Christmas and pretend it’s Christmas with my kids but its not yet. She’s been shipping packages to my house and calling me about sizes and asking what the kids would like. I’m feeling some pressure like I had better get on Christmas shopping but I’m just not there yet. I’m just trying to enjoy the pumpkin spice Silk (soy milk) that I picked up at the grocery store. I’m not ready for Christmas yet.
So is it just me or do you guys feel like everyone’s trying to speed up the schedule and just skip November altogether?
