    I'm sitting in a PA turnpike rest stop taking a break from the miserable weather and drive home that has gone from a tad under two hrs to about 3.5 hrs.

    They are playing nothing but Xmas music. Really? Already? I know it's snowing out but REALLY!

    Bah.. humbug!

    I have no problem with folks decorating early. I don't even mind the store decorations starting to come out. But xmas should be special. By the time xmas rolls around I'm sick of hearing the same xmas songs everywhere I go over and over. Kind of takes the specialness out of it all. One full month should be enough!

    I knew a couple in colorado, they left decorations up year round, 3 huge artificial christmas trees, I would find it would get old after a while. The spiders would love making webs in the branches.

    I normally go all out decorating and bought tons of stuff to put up this year but have decided to take the year off and just enjoy everybody elses hard work. I normally start in early October to get things done and this year should have started in Sept. Oh well, next year! It will seem strange haveing the yard dark.

    Congratulations, j.w. & Craig. You have reached Geezerdom! I've got four grandkids, the oldest already 15! Getting harder all the time to convince people that I'm only 39!!!

    I've read that somewhere also. Think different religions have him born on different dates. I don't think anyone knows for sure.
    My son in law is putting his lights up today since the weather is so nice. Don't think he'll be lighting them yet tho. We just decorate around the pond. So pretty.

    Sunshine I think this year I will put some lights around my pond also. We haven't bothered w/ the whole light thing for a couple yrs now but I like the idea of them around the pond.

    I love it JW. We sit out there even in the cold and have a fire in the fire pit. This is a pic from a few years ago. We've bought some more things for this year. Wanted to decorate today, but hubby says it has to be cold for him to get in the mood to Christmas decorate .. lol
