Bah! Humbug! In the largest order!

I just returned from the mailbox dejected. 

It is a full three days before I will be sitting down to a large table full of family and friends, giving thanks to God for all of the blessings he has bestowed on our family and eating copious amounts of food turkey and potatoes and pie.  And in my hand I am clutching a...Christmas card!

I have spent the last week deleting "Order your Black Friday specials NOW!!!" emails from my inbox and watching Christmas decorations sprout up through the neighborhood.  And what about the stores who have been displaying Christmas goodies since Halloween?

I can overlook all of that I suppose but the Christmas card three days before Thanksgiving?  It is just too much for me to take.  Especially when I haven't even given our Christmas card one single thought. 

I would love to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving but apparently Merry Christmas is in order.

I agree - it's much too early for cards. I'm trying to figure out Thanksgiving yet!

Its way too early for that, what happened to the good old days, when you have to calculate how many days you have before Christmas for the mailman to deliver?!

oh man, that's got to be a record for the earliest Christmas card ever.

Isn't it a bummer? Here in Brazil, there have been Christmas decorations since we got here on Nov 8th, and they increase every day. Of course, they don't have Thanksgiving to wait for, but it still seems a bit excessive.

not only is it bothersome that if came before Thanksgiving. It annoys me that someone is that on the ball. sigh.....I am so not even close to figuring out my Christmas card.
