"IT" happened


it!!! yes, it did. IT happened. i was walking through the halloween section of target, and IT happened. i almost didn't believe IT, but after the second verse of jingle bell rock i stopped dead in my tracks (again, in the halloween section). christmas music was playing in target. i looked around and listened really well to make sure it wasn't a halloween version of jingle bell rock. no sir, it was not. it was the real santa wearing red suit, reindeer flying version of jingle bell rock. am i wrong or is halloween still a week away?? what the HEEEEEEEECK is going on!?

That is so funny. I worked at Target as a manger for a year before the baby and I remember getting Christmas holiday posters and music and products in like Aug-Sept. it was crazy. By the time Christmas was over, you were SO SICK of Christmas stuff. Then, after it was over, everything was like 75-90% off. People are crazy when there is that kind of sale. Well, here anyway. They would have carts full of “crap”, same with after Easter and Halloween. Take care…the Costco here had Christmas stuff before Halloween. Kinda funny.

I know! It's crazy!! I mean, I LOVE Christmas-- but before Halloween? There should be a rule that you must wait until at least November 1st to start with the jingle bells and red, green and white... I'm just not ready to think about Christmas when I'm thinking Halloween costumes and jack o lanterns! :) Glad you are well! Brennan is adorable!

That is too funny! Del and Josh actually had Christmas music playing last weekend while I was at work. They are also already talking about putting up the Christmas lights. And most people say "women" are bad. LOL

I went to the drug store today looking for some last minute halloween stuff for my costume and ALL of the Halloween stuff was already off the shelves and christmas stuff is up. It almost like they forgot Halloween is on Friday.

That is completely ridiculous!!!!!

We have a rule at my house that we can't put any Christmas music on till after Thanksgiving. It just makes it more special that way...like you have to wait for it.
