It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...and I'm NOT ready!

Christmas in NewnanWow, it's hard to believe that it's already November. Halloween has come and gone, and the election is over, and now we are all taking a collective sigh of relief. But time waits for no man.

As I was driving through downtown Newnan yesterday, the workers were putting up the CHRISTMAS decorations. Oh my gosh! Can it possibly be time for Christmas already? Where has the year gone?

Newnan is one of those picture postcard towns that look great when all the halls are decked with boughs of holly, and I know the department stores are already in full holiday mode, but it just reminded me that I am not ready for this!

It was just another kick in the pants for me. It's time to get on the ball, and to shift into the holiday mode. Hmmm...I wonder if I should put my blog URL in my Christmas cards?

Richard - I, too, am not ready at all, but I am in the mood for the holidays this year for some reason.  Perhaps because I see it as an oasis after the desert of negativity that we've all crawled through this year.

Hi Richard,  Wow...I remember back in the day when stores would wait until Thanksgiving to push Christmas.  This year I saw Christmas stuff before Halloween.  On the flip side, I'm thinking of decorating early myself because if I go to all the hassle of hanging the garland, I might as well get more enjoyment out of it!! Cheers, Harley

Susan ~ (Sorry so late in responding to you... it'll probably get lost in the sea of comments)

Step 1 - have a new baby (have I lost you yet??)

Step 2 - enjoy seeing everything through the eyes of a new baby...

Step 3 - put up the decorations, cook and bake like there's no tomorrow...

Step 4 - have a lot of parties, spend time with the ones you love

Step 5 - imbibe! (perhaps that is one of the most important steps!!)

The end! ~A:)

Christmas always creeps up on me too.  I can't believe that Christmas music is playing in all of the stores already.

It seems early for all this but I'm really looking forward to our kids coming home for Christmas for the first time in three or so years.

Alisha, I am 49 years old.  If I have a new baby, I will be delivering it at Ripley's Believe it or not hotel of crazy people.  I do remember those days those, my babies are 12 and 19.  Life was so nice when you had a bunch of little tyke toys under the tree.   Thanks for the memories!

It does seem crazy for there to be Christmas stuff already, we still have to get through Thanksgiving

You are right - it is getting to be an awful lot like Christmas -- went into a store to buy groceries this week and the Christmas music was playing.

Cruised thru Walmart tonight after work heading to RedBox to rent a video and I was amazed at all the Christmas Decorations. Please not yet!!I panicked and went looking for place-mats since Thanksgiving will be at our house this year with daughters new in-laws. Found the Thanksgiving decorations on sale with all the Halloween stuff. Works to my advantage but it is a little sad we are just bypassing the celebration of Thanksgiving. Guess it's not the money makers for the stores that Christmas is.

Richard, I always enjoy Christmas and typically put up at least two trees (actually right now I have four I could put up--long story). Yesterday afternoon though I ran into a lady that is even more into Christmas than me. She puts up five trees and starts decorating at the end of September. By the first week of November she has already started having parties and she said she started doing this after her husband died. She likes to celebrate for at least four months. I thought to myself "what a joyous way to celebrate".
