If I had a nickel for every time someone complained about seeing stores loading shelves with Christmas decorations in November, or crabbed at me for decking my halls before December 1, I’d be so rich I could literally buy the North Pole and become a real Ms. Claus, giving away toys to good girls and boys.
But I noticed something interesting this year.
These same crabby people have been bombarding my Twitter timeline with in-store Halloween decorations, pumpkin-themed hauls, mood tables, etc., etc., etc….. since early AUGUST.
*sniff, sniff* Hmm, what’s that smell? It sure ain’t pumpkin spice, let me tell ya! Let’s do a bit of math, shall we?
August 8 (I saw the Halloween stuff begin) – October 31 (Halloween)
= 86 days
November 12 (I start decorating for Christmas) – December 25 (Christmas)
= 44 days
Uh huh. And that, my friends, is the overpowering smell of hypocrisy in the morning.
So to those people who like to moan and b*tch that we Christmas-loving folk get into “the spirit” too early? Ahem, you know what they say. People in glass haunted houses shouldn’t throw lumps of coal…
🎃 Happy October! 🎃
Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, it’s time for our yearly shift to the Dark Side, as October ushers in the official Halloween season here on Seeker of Truth, as well as over on my Twitter page, @WendyLovesJesus.
