I know I'm not the first person to complain about this, but it is getting worse each and every year! Holiday sales and items are hitting the shelves before the previous holiday has even arrived, and it is getting worse! Now we're jumping the gun by 2 holidays!

In the middle of August, I started seeing Halloween costumes and candy hitting the shelves. I can KIND OF understand costumes. But candy? Who is able to buy a giant bag of candy and have it last over 2 months till October 31st? Not even a monk has that type of self-control (NOTE: I have never met a monk, so I'm just assuming).

There are so many memes floating around about Christmas moving in on Halloween's turf and just blowing past Thanksgiving acting like the whole month of November doesn't exist.

That's been happening for the past few years, so it's nothing new. But seeing Christmas decorations for sale in September? WTF!?! This YouTube video sums it up pretty clearly!

This bombardment of holiday shopping has done only one thing for me. STOP SHOPPING! I'm not dumb; I know this is all in the pursuit of money and is commercialization at its finest.

But, the parts of my soul that enjoyed holidays are being slaughtered by these acts. The only good thing that can come out of all of this is that I'll be able to get my Valentine's cards handed out over Thanksgiving dinner!
