I am one of those sanctimonious souls who constantly bewails the aggressive pre-Halloween marketing of Christmas.
I’m really kind of a PITA.
I flat out refuse to participate in Black Friday because I find it obnoxious to spend so much time, money and energy on crap no one really needs.
Again, total PITA.
But on the Saturday after Thanksgiving?
I become a Christmas Zombie.
I didn’t realize it until I unpacked my groceries a few minutes ago.
I now own:
3 different “Christmas” home fragrances: Christmas Tree, Cinnamon Sparkle and Candy Cane.
Candy Cane Oreos
Christmas Tree shaped snack cakes to send to school with the boys this week.
Holiday sparkle nail polish
4 “gift sets” of soap, a wash puff and lotion to give to God knows who. Teachers I guess. ‘Cause teachers never get dozens of soaps, lotions and wash puffs every single year.
A Christmas Cranberry candle.
In my defense, I didn’t buy a tree.
I already have one.
Might put it up tonight.
What a PITA.
