I've been meaning to bitch about this [;)]. WALGREEN'S and MICHAEL'S stores have had HALLOWEEN items out for nearly a month now!!
I propose that we start celebrating Halloween on St. Patrick's Day and Christmas on Labor Day just to get ahead of the damn retailers who want us to never forget about all the holiday crap they have to sell us.
Oh, well. I strive to keep Halloween in my heart all the year 'round, in spite of 'em. I can find Halloween in my back yard, if I look. (I can find spiders and king snakes on foggy mornings back there.) I don't even need to go to a store for Halloween.
