"Too Early" - Son Volt, 1995

On the way home on the bus from Oxford this evening, my friend Cindy and I were amazed to see a house in the village of Kidlington which was already decorated for Christmas (and all lit up). Overly decorated, too...but that's not the point of this post.

Decorating the outside of your house for Christmas this early just isn't acceptable! It's not even Thanksgiving yet!

Hallelujah! I heard my first Muzak Christmas Carol the day before Halloween. No amount of mumbling and raving under my breath would make it go away.

By the way, I hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day.

I'm with you! I saw some lights around the corner last night and flipped! I am not ready for this.

Bah! Humbug! I'm having a hard time gettng into Christmas this early by wrapping presents and sending them to the States. Go see what happened to me this afternoon while doing just that. Heh.

I'm with you on this one, Janet, and with everyone else who thinks that the earlier the 'Christmas Spirit' gets going, the more diluted and pointless it becomes. But to be honest, I think that to find anyone among the good citizens of Kidlington who actually knows when Thanksgiving is, would be as difficult as finding horse feathers! ;-) :-)

Hi Howard...that reference to Thanksgiving was meant to be a joke....!!!!

Perhaps not a very good one, though...

Oops!!!! (We Brits have absolutely NO sense of humo(u)r!!!)

But I do hear tell of Brits who think it's on July 4th, equally some Americans who don't realize it's not a public holiday here!!!

Best regards,

No, Howard, it's NOT you -- I was being too obtuse!!!

I will not have you criticize yourself, Janet! And if anyone else does, well, my friends will call on him to explain that I demand an explanation!
