I Am Trying

As I have written here before, I have always been adamant about keeping Christmas from coming until after Thanksgiving. In light of that, our door decoration is autumnal, not Christmasy. See?

And yet we seem to be the only ones trying to keep the two separate. 

The Jackson Square tree lighting is on November 20th. The Canal Street lighting is the 25th. The tree and Canal Street decorations are already up, even though they are waiting until the 25th to light any of them. Even the Roosevelt Hotel's gift shop has been decked out in Christmas finery ~ since the beginning of October.

In time, I may give in. I may start decorating and listening and going full speed ahead somewhere early November. For now, though, this year at least, I am trying.

Those are autumnal Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.

Your door decoration is indeed autumnal, and I very much appreciate that. We are certainly on the same wavelength, as I express in my rant in today's (Monday) blog.

Hang in there! There are those of us among your followers who very much agree with you. Had a conversation today with the person behind the deli counter in my local grocery store about pushing the season and we agreed it was inappropriate. She said family is fine for Christmas, but stores with decorations and gift items for sale in October is not.

Mike ~ Yes Yes and Yes!

AppsRUs ~ That's how I feel as well. And I'm working on hanging in. You do, too!
