Thursday after Nicole and I got home from school, as we were getting out of the car she pointed and said "Mom our neighbors are weird", and as we have alot of those in this neighborhood I had to look to see where she was pointing...
Lo and behold the house across the street and slightly caddy corner from us had a lighted wire Christmas tree in their yard. I truly didn't know what to say. When it got dark later that evening and we went to drive to the bus stop to get Chris, Nicole looked that way and said "You've got to be kidding". Not only did they now have their wire and lights Christmas tree in the yard, but Frosty, Rudolph and about a million Christmas lights.
It is two weeks till THANKSGIVING!!!! And as if that wasn't enough , after we picked Chris up we went grocery shopping at Walmart. We walked in and there was a nicely decorated Christmas tree. ( even when we were in Abilene on Halloween? we walked in and there was a Christmas tree at that walmart, with bats and ghost and goblins flying around the rest of the store... and Christmas candy on one side of the aisle and Halloween candy on the other...)
As we went through the store Thursday night I also heard Christmas music being piped into the store.
I wonder... are they trying to brain wash us? They build us up into a Christmas frenzy , wanting us to spend tons of money on Black Friday?
I can't help but think, that even though I love Christmas , I've now found th reason why I cna't stand Christmas music by Mid- December. I've been listening to it for over a month already!!!!
