Holiday Hype!

I can't believe that it's almost December! But I really can't believe how people are bypassing Thanksgiving this year. I really enjoy every single holiday, mostly because I get a day off work for most of them! That's one thing I like about the federal government! But every year it seems like Christmas comes sooner than the year before. This year it is definitely noticeable! I am pretty sure I saw Christmas decorations out before Halloween! I am not saying I'm a huge supporter of Halloween and everything. I just think the time around the end of October is meant for enjoying the fall season more than Halloween itself. It's just a fun time of year! Everything seems to slow down just for a bit when it gets a little chilly outside.

I have seen at least two Christmas trees up. Fall decorations are already on clearance. And Christmas decorations are being highlighted in store ads. Why are we rushing towards the end of the year? I love Christmas. But I am not ready for Christmas yet. This year has already flown by! I've already been married more than five months! I want everything to slow down.. just a little bitty bit! I'm enjoying shopping for Christmas gifts and browsing for good deals. Just because you put the decorations up doesn't make the holiday come any faster. It just makes the holiday season last longer. But isn't 25 days of a holiday long enough? I personally have been dreaming of turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce for the last month. Maybe once that dream is fulfilled I can move on to dreaming about Christmas!
