    The local Home Depot is already selling Christmas lights. Good thing, too. I need some new white ones. I don't wait until the last minute to get my lights, I usually get them at the end of October.

    I think I'm going to get the LED ones. Since they use less energy, I can run them off the same cord rather than using different cords.

    I've seen Christmas cards.

    If there have been any Christmas decorations, I didn't notice them. They put out Halloween stuff in late August now, and shortly after it seems, Christmas.

    What about Thanksgiving? Are they skipping over that? I guess it's not as much of a money maker for most stores.

    Yeah I did. And it really ticked me off.

    They put it it right in front of the 2012 New Years display!
