What's This? It's August 16th! I think!

I was at one of our local hobby stores today, and, in truth, I had seen the beginnings of this before in July! The difference now is that the season is in full force, and I'm shocked, since today's date is August 16th and not December 16th. At least, I think it is. No, I'm sure it's August 16th Yet, when I went to Hobby Lobby today, the aisles were full of Christmas! It's 84 degrees outside in Minnesota, not 10 below zero as it should be at Christmas. I'm not ready for the season to begin so early. Too late. Christmas has begun, and I can't stop it. The good thing is that there was no Christmas music playing. I'm not sure, but I don't think that is far behind. Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas! Somehow that doesn't sound quite right.

Oh my! I am scared to go shopping now - lol!
I'm hoping you are right & it is indeed just an early start - because the other option would mean that I have missed my oldest son's birthday (Dec 15th).

I'm with you, Mallory. I'm not ready for Christmas stuff just yet! I think I saw some ornaments and stuff on display in Michael's last week, but I walked right by it and pretended I didn't see it :)
