    1. Famous lyrics left on the cutting room floor:
      "Deck the Halls with Parts of Molly"

    1. Normally, I wouldn't either, but the commercialism which attaches itself to the day is just too much.

  3. No Christmas songs should be played in this house before its time.

    1. Still, "It's beginning to Look a Lot Like Thanksgiving" doesn't quite sound right.

    1. I thought it was "Deck the Halls With Sprigs of Parsley"...?

  5. We don't see what's fully going on here, Al. Is he roasting his chestnuts on an open fire?

    1. Either that or his Yule log.
      NOTE: This is the first instance of a "Yule Log" reference for 2014. It won't be the last.

  6. Ain't it the truth! Our "At Home" store was clearing out Fall stuff to make room for a zillion assorted Christmas trees (lime green, pink, white, purple...no joke!).

  7. I went to Lowe's for potting soil and plants last weekend. I couldn't believe how many enormous, garish Christmas decorations were in the front of the store. They have nothing to do with Christmas.

    Love,

    1. What? You mean a blow-up Winnie the Pooh doesn't conjure up visions of Little Baby Jesus?

    2. Would you believe an inflatable Scrooge McDuck as Santa?

  8. Should we be taking advice from poor Ned Stark, who couldn't even keep his own head?

    1. Too bad you don't have Thanksgiving in between. That family holiday is really my favorite.

  10. I've always held out to the day after Thanksgiving before Christmas began - but this year I'm starting earlier. I need the fun of Christmas in my house longer.

    1. The day after really used to be a big deal when I was growing up. Now? Well, as you can see from Ned Stark up there.....

  11. It really does look like Ned's holding a microphone, and getting ready to burst into song. Not sure if he'll lead with Blue Christmas or Red Wedding!

    1. Red Wedding...I see what you did there.
      He wasn't invited, though.
      No head.

  12. My first sight of Christmas this year was an entire ten days before Halloween. Guess where? The NEX. The Halloween stuff was 40% off and the Christmas ornaments and decorations were everywhere.

    1. Ahhh, the good old Navy Exchange. Apparently, they're much more than Godiva chocolates, Ziggy cards, and cheap smokes.

  13. Ha! Ha! I have to laugh, because I can't believe so MANY folks have totally forgotten about Mr. Turkey Day. What once was a skeleton hanging has been replaced with Frosty! They're everywhere. We don't even have one flake of snow yet. This is Minnesota even. So weird.

    1. They got a lot of snow in Maine last weekend. But, since I lived there for eight years, I know they pretty much expect that at this time of year.
      I am cheered by my neighbor down the street. he has one of those huge blow-up turkeys. I want to ring his doorbell and say, "Bravo!"

  14. I wish!
    The Christmas music started in the mall here about two days before Halloween.
