Our local garden center is in the process of putting out all the Fall (Halloween/Thanksgiving) stuff. They block off the whole area until it's done. Probably open up next week. They won't do Christmas stuff until October.
And so, as Tiny Tim observed, "God Bless us!! Everyone!!''
A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens (1843)
I've seen the first box of christmas crackers on sale.
So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
Driving his reindeer across the sky.
Don't stand underneath when they fly by.
I've just had the Studio Christmas catalogue drop through the door.
