Pumpkin Spice gunpowder is all right with me…as long as I don’t start seeing it on the shelves in early August next to the “Early Bird Gets The Worm” Christmas tree sales.
Pumpkin *anything* should start on October 1.
November is for Autumn & harvest.
Thanksgiving is for the entire weekend.
Christmas decorations can go up the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend, but Peppermint Mocha, Burl Ives, Nativity scenes with Baby Jesus, and Ho Ho Ho don’t start until December 1.
Home Depot starts putting everything out the first week of August, right in the middle of freaking summertime when we’re suffering 110-deg heat waves. Makes my eye twitch.
