It’s hard to believe but I’m already seeing ads for companies who hang Christmas lights on houses. It’s October, mind you. We haven’t made it through Halloween, let along Thanksgiving and we’re already talking about the jolly old elf?! I sure don’t remember it being like this when I was a kid. I remember experiencing one holiday and then, the very next day, displays would be up for the next holiday in stores. I think it’s just another sign of how much less we appreciate things today and are always trying to look ahead for something to help make us happier.
