#33 - Fall Schizophrenia

Fall - that beautiful time of year when autumnal magic happens - leaves begin to change from deep greens to varied hues of orange, yellows and burgundy; temperatures begin to drop; humidity falls off so curly haired people like myself do not look like Orphan Annie.  It has to be my favorite time of year. And here it is the end of September, and oh, wait a minute, what do I see at BJs......pumpkins, yes; Halloween costumes, yes; bags and bags of candy to delight all the trick-or-treaters, yes. But something was not right.  Something was out of place.  What was it???????
Not one or two, mind you.  A WHOLE FREAKING AISLE FULL OF TREES, ORNAMENTS, LIGHTS.  You name it, it was out there!  I like Christmas and all that goes with it - decorating, family time, music, etc. But I like it at its proper time - after Thanksgiving!  Could we at least wait until after Halloween to put out the garland and the snow globes???  Maybe we should just have ALL of the holidays lumped together in the store aisles ALL YEAR LONG - no designated time for any one holiday in particular - and then we can just get what we want, when we want it!!!!!!
