    It's July right? Did I take a longer nap today then I thought?

    That's right folks, went to the grocery store just now and they had Halloween candy....At first I saw a candy display box with pumpkins and thought that was odd, no way it could be Halloween themed in July...then I looked behind it and sure enough a bunch more with witches and crap..

    I swear, New England hates summer. We all love fall, and the rest is just spent waiting for next fall...

    lol, i have 6 xmas ornaments hanging from my fireplace mantle going on 7 years now. they're the only decorations i put up and figured they may as well become a permanent display. oh, an abstract santa statue friends sent me from england is on the mantle as well. as you age, time is precious. taking these down is a waste of time.

    Christmas in July has been happening since the 1st of July. QVC and other stations like that have been selling already.

    How can that be? Halloween has just GOT to be racist or sexist like everything else. Jack.

    Wiccans see it as cultural appropriation. Or not.

    I'm just in it for the candy. Of course, it was easier to score the candy when the kids were little, and I could convince them that the Milky Ways and Three Musketeers sucked, and I was doing them a favor by dealing with them.

    And then there are the militant feminists:

    We were at @Home in Seekonk on Monday. Not only did they have Fall and Halloween decorations out, they were wheeling in boxed Christmas trees.
