I noticed a display of Christmas -- oooops, better be politically correct here! -- "holiday" music at Fred Meyer back around the end of September. Am I the only person in the world who finds that terribly depressing? Two months from today will be Christmas Eve. Two months!!! Before we know it, it'll be Christmas in July, just like a mattress store advertises every summer.
I've gotten to the point where I'm so sick of the 'holiday push' by the time the first of December rolls around I don't even care if I decorate my house or even send out Christmas cards any more. Ooops...there I go again. Holiday decorations. Holiday cards.
I miss the good old days.
And they were the good old days, even if I'm not being politically correct in saying so.
I love Christmas.
And "Silent Night."
And Handel's "Hallelujah" chorus.
And "Joy to the World."
And "O Holy Night."
And I still have the right to say so.
Even if I'm not politically correct in doing so.
