It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Every year people complain about Christmas decorations going up too early. I used to do this too, but apparently I’ve lately gotten used to it; and for some reason it no longer bothers me. I realized that several weeks ago as I was looking at a Christmas display while this song played in the background.

It’s funny; when I was a kid, Christmas would have seemed like several eons away from the 10th of December, now it feels as if it will be here in the blink of an eye.

P.S. That song “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot like Christmas” has never been quite the same for me since I saw the Lovecraft-inspired parody. (Which will make no sense unless you’ve read Lovecraft’s The Shadow over Innsmouth.)

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
