It's heeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrreeeeee

Forget about Halloween! My Thanksgiving is over!
I'm ready for Jolly Ol' St-Nick!
I was grocery shopping this morning at Canada's Superstore (here it's called Maxi & cie) and noticed that they were busy decorating for Xmas!
How cool is that??? ok a bit early, but how cool is that? We all need some love,peace ,goodwill and cheer and nothing makes me feel more festive than seeing Xmas decorations!
Yes I have already begun my shopping...but since it will be a thrifty Xmas...there's no time like the present to get started!
I don't plan on buying any new decorations....except maybe a string of lights if one dies. And besides second hand decorations have more character, a je ne sais quoi (besides the dirt), a Mad Men flair...They are full of memories, of what was and what could've been and didn't happen...Did I mention that lighted Xmas decorations of any kind when I was growing up (except plain lights) were a BIG NONO?
They didn't fit with my parents vision of Xmas. So now I'm totally cuckoo for snowmen and santas and the whole kit'n'caboodle. They make my heart sing!
Ok it's lunchtime in the suburbs! Be sure to visit tomorrow for VTT! See ya!:)

I noticed that christmas stuff is up here too! Early early early! For real!

I have a knee jerk reaction to holiday stuff from childhood - my friends mom decorated with blue lights and I loved them to pieces. Just blue. And i loved something about those lights and im a total sucker for them now... nothing beats that color for me.

I guess its a memory thing
