Putting my Christmas Tree up Early

Why, yes, we did start decorating our Christmas Tree tonight  -Nov. 9th - had to keep up with Stacia Hay!  I know a lot of people have posted about how they don't like how people decorate and stuff so much before Christmas.  But you know what?  I Love Christmas!  We live in a free country and I have the right to start decorating whenever I want.  If you go into some place playing Christmas Music and you don't like it; most of us have phones with ear buds outlets that you can use to listen to anything you want to.  I personally don't like the music a lot of businesses play throughout the rest of the year.  If you don't like the Christmas display and decorations; ignore them.  God knows their are a lot of displays and decorations that should be ignored the rest of the year.  I don't not overlook Thanksgiving.  When the kids were young we always did the Thanks Living Box, now they are older we always talk about the first Thanksgiving and share what we are thankful for. I think businesses should choose for themselves weather or not they are open.  I must admit, we have gone as a family to Wal-Mart on Thanksgiving.  I do feel bad that some people have to work, but many people are just glad they have a job.  You may not like celebrating Christmas so early and that's fine; but don't you dare try and tell me when I can and can't start celebrating.  I know the reasons I celebrate and no, I'm not tired of them at any point.  If you do tire of Christmas, you may want to check why you celebrate in the first pace.  As Scrooge said; "I will Honor Christmas in my heart and will try and keep it all the year!"
