Growing up, the official start of the holiday season was always the day after Thanksgiving. But lately, it seems like the retail world wants the holiday season to start sometime shortly after Halloween, with a “nice turkey dinner” at half time.
Am I right or am I right?
Anyways, while I shudder at the sight of Christmas candy lining the aisles of the local CVS in late October or early November, I have noticed my own habits shifting:
I’m starting to listen to Christmas music earlier and earlier each year.
Though I may not be decorating for the holidays just yet, I have been secretly playing my favorite Christmas music* more and more.
If I’m going to be completely honest, I even played some Christmas music a few times before Halloween.[Hangs head in shame.]
Anyways, I would love to know if other people share the same double standard: I shun holiday items in the stores crazy early, but I’ve been secretly playing my own holiday tunes at the exact same time.
Is anyone else doing this, too?
Thank you so much for reading and have a great weekend!
