Christmas threw-up...

right outside my office door! There are all women who work in the main office at work and each of them seem to have the elf gene! Every day for the past two weeks this Christmas season has been making it's way into display...radios tuned to holiday music, Christmas tree candles filling every corner with their scent and even small decorations starting to appear. And then as I returned to my office late this afternoon after what felt like a marathon meeting...there it stood! We have a 8 foot, white artificial Christmas tree already decorated with lights, the largest purple and white bow ever (school colors) on top, and random school stuff hanging from the tree. When I say random...I mean note pads, coffee cups with our logo, hall passes, even a foam finger once sold as a school fundraiser! I didn't have a camera tonight but I promise pictures will follow.

But what I really had to say...it's not even Thanksgiving and I have to look at the craziest Christmas tree ever! Is it weird that I was almost inspired to put up my tree...almost that is!

The office down the hall from ours has had their tree up for a couple weeks now. Can you imagine? We make fun of them for it.

They should string the word "tacky' around it with bright red tacky cardboard letters.

NOT before Thanksgiving!! It's wrong. So very wrong. I desperately wanted to wear one of my Christmas scarfs today but nooooo..not before Turkey day. Some people just won't learn.

I will have to decorate my office the week after Thanksgiving and that's sometimes too early for my taste. I don't envy you.
