Turkey what?

Sunday night, after working 2nd shift, I made an emergency run to Walmart ( I hate that I went there but it was the closest place..grr). When I walked in the door I was greeted by a huge Christmas tree, complete with lights blazing and ornaments a-plenty. As I walked further in the store, Christmas decorations, Christmas clothing, Christmas wrapping..Christmas everything- was everywhere.
Maybe I'm one of the last people to notice and/or care- but where did Thanksgiving go? The funny thing is that in years past I remember retailers trying to make a *small* attempt to aknowledge the holiday. Now they dont even pretend to try.
The second the clock strikes midnight on October 31st, the Christmas shopping season is here.

Herein lies the problem- I'm not ready. I'm still enjoying my pumpkins, and the leaves- the leaves that just started turning vibrant colors, I might add.

Bah humbug.
