Autumn, when it turned cold.

It’s that time of year, again…*
the trees, as precocious as ever, are showing off their new colors…
(Which the wind is determined to rob them of…)
The time changes, leaving the world shrouded in darkness one hour earlier than normal…
It’s not quite summer, and not quite winter…which means you bundle up in the mornings, and lug around the heap of warmer clothes you’ve had to shed during the afternoon…
Everyone’s in a tizzy for a holiday you don’t even get a day off for…
And everyone’s pondering the immortal question:

Is November 6th too early for Egg Nog and Christmas Carols?

*despite the sarcasm of this post, I am actually a huge fan of Autumn. Except Halloween. Is there anything more pointless on our calendar? I think not.

  1. You know WalMart has Christmas music playing so I guess if someone wants to have eggnog and sing Christmas carols, go for it!   Walmart says its OK.

    It is socially acceptable to start listening to Christmas music after October 1st.  Or so said my high school Latin teacher, and we both know that I can’t disagree with her.If you don’t have it, you need Over the Rhine’s newest Christmas album (2006 or 1007, I think), “Snow Angel.”

  3. Not only is Walmart playing Christmas music (Lowe’s is playing “holiday” music instead) but today they were also passing out small cups of Boiled Custard and EggNog for everyone to taste.  Really made me want to go home and watch “White Christmas”.  πŸ™‚

  4. @laddielou – Because…it is a highly commercialized day that most people spend a ton of money on (in candy and costumes, parties, etc.) but you don’t even get the day off! Waste of time, in my opinion. πŸ˜› πŸ™‚

  5. the answer I believe is no, there is no wrong time for eggnog and traveling in herds of people that sing out of key.and halloween is usefull for providing an exscuse to run around with your underwear OUTside of your pants (batman costume).
