when the nights begin to get cooler
seems like i begin to feel that christmas thingy right about the time the nights get cool here in dallas.our first officially cool night was about two weeks ago when it began to drop to "sweater" weather by late evening.in fact yesterday i was out at 4am & wearing a jacket would have been comfortable.but i would've felt weird walking into walmart wearing one.
september has to do with that christmassy feeling because i see halloween stuff in the stores. halloween reminds me of christmas,as october 31st might as well be the first day of november.it's on november 1st (late halloween night/early nov.1st)that the tv cable channels "showcase" and sounds of the seasons" begin to broadcast christmas music and continue through the rest of the holiday season
i always look forward to that.october is also not far from thanksgiving which also reminds me of christmas.but initially,i get the 'feeling' in september and this year it was mid september.

"Cool weather" in Arizona is supposed to start today; mind you we consider anything under 100 degrees cool here! High of 95 and lows in the 60s! It may sound weird if you live somewhere cold but just the fact that itís under 100 now I can feel Christmas coming!
Oh btw last day of September!!!

I kinda know what you mean. I have lived in Florida for 5 years, (I'm originally from Michigan) and, although we usually don't get above, say, 92 or so, since we have the high humidity, it feels a lot hotter. Well, we had a 'cold front' come in last night, which meant that when I took the kids to school this morning, it was in the 60's and low humidity. (well, low for us anyway.) I can't tell you how wonderful it felt. I can't honestly say it made me feel Christmas, but that is partially because I know it will only last for a couple days and then the hot weather will be back again and partially because of having lived most of my life in Michigan. I'll tell ya, it takes some getting used to, going Christmas shopping in shorts, a t-shirt, and sandals. lol.

It may have something to do with this forum, but I am starting to feel it now. It is more autumny here now(rains quite a bit) and I am wearing warmer clothing.
