I saw my first Christmas display in the mall tonight.
I know the stores are desperate for business but this is getting ridiculous. Last year when I saw the demon masks next to the angel tree toppers I was aghast but shit, it is barely out of summer for Godsakes!
What really gets me is when I do the count on my fingers..Christmas really isn't that far off. I think that is a sign of getting old. The year goes by so fast that it seems that Easter, Independence Day and Christmas are within a two week period of time.
I've got so much shit going on in my personal life and the office currently that I really wish I could just skip Christmas all together this year. Nevermind that this is always my favorite holiday..the best time of the year for me. I mean I get to shop with absolutely no guilt and what could be better than that? However, the work involved to prep for the holiday in my job is simply overwhelming. Hundreds of gifts to customers, the office Christmas party, figuring out bonuses for everyone with this shitty ass economy and working in my personal chores in between.
It is making me tired just thinking about it.
Come to think of it, having it start now isn't such a bad idea. Gives me more time to get my shit together without freaking out.
