Today my thoughts center not just on how commercialized Christmas has become, but on how early it all starts. I love Christmas decorations and Christmas music, but I can only take so much of them. The day after Halloween I went into Wal-mart and they are already playing Christmas music!!!!! Of course, they already had the Christmas stuff out, but that I"m used to. But already playing Christmas music? Last year, my favorite radio station (Magic 104.1 out of OKC) went to all Christmas music right after Thanksgiving. That is just too much for me!
So I have to fight off my annoyance at all of this every year to get into the Christmas spirit. Some years it works, some years I lose the battle. This year, I am going to win the battle! I am going to relax, I am going to enjoy Christmas and celebrate the season. That's half the battle right?
Tomorrow, let's talk about Thanksgiving! Later this week, I'm going to find and share some Christmas gift ideas.
