The Holidays Arrive Earlier Every Year

I saw a commercial on TV this morning for a coffee creamer that featured flavors like Pumpkin Spice and Candy Cane, all being enjoyed by a woman outdoors with snow in the background.  She was all bundled up in mittens and a warm stocking cap and I thought "Nooooooo, I'm not ready to see this yet!" 

There are some haunted houses that are open already, and it's still nearly six weeks until Halloween.  I even saw my first Halloween "pop up" store in Madison back in early August.  And of course, some stores already have their Christmas section up and running.  This is just all too soon for me.  How about you?  I'll be over here in the summer clearance items section, slowly turning into a curmudgeon 🙂
