So, I was at the store today and that old, familiar song started playing through my head "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas." Everywhere I looked where nutcrackers, Christmas trees, ornaments...Christmas everywhere. At first, I thought maybe I had entered into an alternative world where Christmas was now celebrated in October. But, then, I realized, no, stores are actually getting people ready for a holiday three months away and completely bypassing at least two other major holidays. When I was younger, stores still waited for November before committing to the holiday. But, now, it's as if Christmas is the only holiday that still counts.
