Happy Halloween

Posted By on October 31, 2015

It’s too bad we can’t just slow down and enjoy the holidays. I went to Home Depot this week and they already had a full Christmas display up. Before Halloween. What was wrong with enjoying Halloween, with the trick-or-treaters, the pumpkin patches, and haunted houses, all by itself, leaving all the other holidays out of it. Then we could slowly transition into the turning leaves, football, and Thanksgiving dinner, with all the family gathered, leaving Black Friday out of it. Then on to Christmas, or Hanukkah, or whatever your holiday may be, and truly enjoy it, without it already being stale before it begins, sick of Christmas carols and commercials. And while we’re at it, we could call it by it’s real name. I don’t want a “holiday tree”. I want a Christmas tree.

The way it used to be when I was a kid.

Just thoughts.
