Just further proof that I'm right.

I have never been a fan of Halloween.

Quite frankly, outside of the benefits of great candy, I could care less.

I don't really care about dressing up. I feel like it's a holiday for kiddos.

And so while most stores already have their displays of skanky costumes for adults up, I'm concerned about the next event.

Christmas.

I know.

It's bad. I realize that I should not be thinking about it already, but I can't help it.

After my birthday, my decorations consist of pumpkins, mums, hay bales and leaves until Thanksgiving and then I put up my Christmas decorations the day after thanksgiving.

I've even been known to start listening to Christmas music in October as an outward sign of my open disgust for all things Halloween.

I also start watching movies.

My dad calls it "pushing it" when I roll out the Christmas tunes in October. And by November when I've ran out of Christmas movies to watch, he says, "well that's because you've ran it into the ground already."

My dad's also known as the Grinch.

The point is that for years I've been arguing that we should just skip right past Halloween and enjoy the fall and Thanksgiving and listen to Christmas music and watch movies to pass the time.

I call it getting in the spirit.

My dad calls it rushing things.

Well, daddio, I'm here to tell you and the rest of the blog world that reads my blog that cable television is now on my side.

Saturday morning, I woke up from a barbeque induced coma to catch a little bit of the boob tube before heading to the library.

And there it was...a Christmas miracle the day after my birthday!

Christmas Vacation was on the Comedy Channel!!!!

So see, maybe skipping over Halloween isn't such a bad idea after all.

Happy Thursday.

I am squealing and doing a happy dance just thinking about Christmas. I want to put away my fall decorations (that I just put out last Friday) and get my Christmas ones out LIKE NOW!

I love Halloween! I love seeing the kids dressed up. Now skipping it for me. I like Christmas a lot, but hate the snow, so I can put it off for as long as possible :)

Agreed. Halloween is not my thing. I just don't get the obsession.

I like Halloween but my heart belongs to Christmas.
