Only 68 Days Until Christmas!

I was in J C Penny this evening, and while browsing around I noticed that the background music sounded familiar. For a minute I thought that it was some song that had a melodic phrase similar to a very popular piece of music; just an interesting coincidence. But as I listened to see if the melody changed, I realized that what I was listening to was the more popular tune.

"Angels We Have Heard On High".

I said to the guy at the register, "Christmas music? Already?" He gave a light-hearted roll of the eyes and said, "Tell me about it." I love Christmas music, don't get me wrong (my father is a non-repentant Christmas-aholic), but this does seem a little early.

So you know what that means, right? When you start hearing Christmas carols played in the stores, it's almost...

Right. Halloween.

Trackback Pings


Our local Hobby Lobby started stocking Christmas items right after Labor Day!

At least it seems that the word Chirstmas will be a little more correct to say this year. Home Depot & Lowes are both indicating they will have Christmas trees this year instead of holiday trees.

Ah, a triumph over political correctness. :)
