Christmas Carols Already? Really?

Ok, so I have to admit that I am guilty of listening to Christmas music in June if I am having a bad day.

I am a hypocrite though because I think it is ridiculous that retail stores and radio stations play Christmas music prior to Thanksgiving day...and more specifically before Santa makes his entrance in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

However, this year is different. I am in Denver by myself for the Thanksgiving. Even though I have some sweet benefits working for the Feds, I don't have the day after Thanksgiving off. So, I am here in Denver whilst my family is in sunny Arizona at my aunt's house.

To be fair, I won't be alone on Thanksgiving day. My friend Daisy is coming over so we are making dinner for two since her mom is refusing to make Thanksgiving dinner this year.

Here's where I am also a's not even Thanksgiving week and I have put up the Christmas decorations. That's right, my house is bedecked for the holidays and it's still five days until the first day of the Christmas season in my mind.

My excuse? I work all next week and my mom and grandma get back on Friday while I am work. So, my surprise of decorating for Christmas needed to get done.

I do feel great that it's all done and can't wait for them to come home to Christmas.


  1. IIIIIII LLLOOOOOVVVEEEEE CHRIIIISTMAAASSS DECOOOORRRRR!!! And I will begin listening to xmas tunes on kozy 101 promptly on Thanksgiving.

  2. hehe. When I worked at the mall I would walk in and every day, without fail, I declared Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole lucky for being dead - otherwise I'd have killed them.
    That being said - I'm kind of hypocritical as well - I absolutely L-O-V-E buying Christmas presents . . . usually for me.
