Last Sunday afternoon, we were sitting around the house, after eating a big "Sunday dinner" (we've been transplanted Southerns for 24 years, that's what you do on Sundays after church...and it was a tradition we seemed to adjust too real quick...that and taking a nap afterwards) and I began to hear the familiar skips of the snare drum and the big band brass of Michael Buble' singing "Santa Claus is Coming to Town".
And then a few minutes later, I was tagged in a post on the College Gal's Facebook wall:
"Christmas in July officially starts now!!!!!! Beginning with Christmas music all day!"
Of course I shouldn't complain. I went into a craft store last week and there were three full aisles of autumn and Halloween items for sale. And truthfully it gave me a little thrill. I love autumn and seeing all the pumpkins and fall colors made me temporarily forget it was 96 degrees outside with 100% humidity.
And cool air is only a mere 147 days away.
And so, after a couple of hours of listening to Michael, The Chipmunks and Bing (what a combo) croon away about Santa, snow and twinkle lights, I started to actually feel a little of the Christmas spirit.
But then I began thinking about all the Christmas hoopla that comes with the holidays.
Bad idea. Decorating, baking, shopping, cleaning, spending...*sigh*
Maybe I'll go pop "The Grinch" dvd in and see if that helps any.
