Is it that time already?

The Christmas advertisements are up, the malls have started to play Christmas music (or at least, so I hear... I haven't been in one yet myself to check out this rumour), and worst of all, people have started to put up their Christmas lights.

I say worst of all because Myles is so adamantly against having anything Christmas start before December 1st. Now, as we drive to where we're going, I get to listen to a series of groans, sighs, and other noises of complaint. It's almost enough to make me pity him. It must be tough to be an idealist taking a stand against the cruel world :-)

I guess this means I can't start playing my Christmas mix for another 10 days... even if it does only have 5 or 6 true Christmas songs on it!

HE may be against it, but that doesn't mean YOU have to be too, and if you want to play your CD, then DO IT. Don't ever change yourself for anyone else. They either accept you for who you are (and your likes and dislikes) or they don't, and COMPROMISE is a two-way street.

Not to worry, Jenna, I'm too strongly set in my ways to change things that are fundamental about myself for anyone else (as I'm sure you remember!).

However, on the topic of Christmas music, it doesn't actually matter to me.

Besides which, I'm getting more than enough amusement out of having Myles groan everytime he comes over to my place - my tenants have already got the Christmas lights up; including the Candy Cane lights in the tree in the backyard, so festive!

I love Christmas, not because of all the commercial hype (which is what everyone seems to groan about) but because, for me, it's a time of family getting together and I happen to like giving gifts. I don't care if that buys into the commercialism - I could buy a friend a coffee and that would be buying into the commercialism! *SHRUGS* To me it will always be a family holiday.
