Here We Go...

I've shared my thoughts about Christmas before. In a nutshell, I don't like it. There's too much stress involved, and I don't need it. I would love to be able to just sit back and enjoy the season for what it truly is, but that never seems to happen.

There's always a big rush for everything from shopping to doing cards, from wrapping to baking. I'm quite tired of all of it.

A little over a week ago I had to go to WalMart.


I avoid it as much as I can. In fact the last time I was actually in the store was sometime in August...or maybe it was July. Heck, I can't remember, thank goodness.

Anyway, they had holiday music blaring away and it drove me crazy. I could see that all the Christmas stuff was out, but I purposely avoided that part of the store.

I know they are the merchandising people, but for crying out loud, let me enjoy Thanksgiving first!

I despise Wal-Mart. And they are pretty much my only grocery shopping option here. It's awful.

I was at a Wally World a couple of days ago and couldn't believe that they were playing Christmas music already. It is way too soon! I'm going to hate Christmas music by the time this season is over.

P.S. And what about the radio stations that begin to play Christmas music ONLY starting here in a week or so? UGH ~ I hate that!

Trying again -- cyberspace ate my comment, I guess.

I go to Walmart because I can afford their prices. Usually try to get most things at WINCO, an employee owned store. Safeway and Albertsons and Fred Meyers are just too expensive for my budget.

Walmart is not the only store that already has Christmas music already.

I don't let them "make" my Christmas. I do that myself. It doesn't bother me. I mostly ignore it except for looking fr snowmen to buy for my collection. lol

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas AFTER you enjoy Thanksgiving.
