Look Out! Here Come the Holidays!!

Updated on October 19, 2015

Ready or Not, Here They Come!!

So Halloween is nearly here and you know what that means!

In every store you go to you'll see tons of Christmas scenes!

Thanksgiving's still a month away, the turkey's not been bought;

We still don't know the efficacy of this year's flu shot.

But we can buy some ornaments, some colored lights on strings

Some gaudy outdoor Santas, reindeer, snowmen and such things.

Black Friday ads are being leaked- just Google it- you'll see

Yes, it's that time of year again. There's no time left to flee.

The leaves are falling fast and soon the winter snows will come,

So buckle up! Enjoy the ride! Prepare to have some fun!

Clean out the spare room because your guests will be here soon!

It's time for family drama to wash in like a typhoon!

The in-laws never get along, it sounds like world war III

And look! There's our grandbaby! Yup. She's climbing up the tree...

But wait. I've gotten way ahead of where we are today.

My vision of the future may not come to pass that way.

It's all about the attitude! (According to my shrink.)

I must control emotions that I feel, the way I think.

And so here goes- I think the Holidays are really swell!

And anyone who disagrees can simply go to... his or her own therapist.

Did we miss the memo?

WJLA, Washington, DC- Poll Says 71% of Americans Annoyed by Christmas Displays in October

This article was from LAST year:

BY ABC 7 NEWS MONDAY, OCTOBER 27TH 2014

WASHINGTON (WJLA) -- With Halloween just days away, many stores already have Christmas displays up - despite the fact that most Americans are 'annoyed' by the so-called 'Christmas creep.'

A new survey conducted by the data firm Rich Relevance found 71% of U.S. adults said they were "annoyed or very annoyed" when they see Christmas items in stores before Halloween has passed.

However, younger shoppers seemed to be a bit more accepting of the holiday marketing trend. The firm's research showed the annoyance ratio dropped to 59% among those ages 18 to 29. Adults aged 45 to 60 were the least accepting of retailers pushing Christmas in October, the poll found.
