Let me start by saying that, yes, I know about 90% of you are not going to like what I'm about to say. That's fine. If I can get through the day with 10% of the people I encounter not cussing me, it's been an alright day.
So, what is this highly controversial topic? TSA pat-downs? Bristol Palin's continued run on Dancing with the Stars? No, no... it's worse.
I don't like Christmas.
Why I don't like Christmas is a whole different post. But, what I like even less is Christmas in mid-November. Why? Because I do like Thanksgiving. I think it's mean to just skip over it. So does my friend, Kerri. You can read why here. (Although she may call our friendship into question after my anti-Christmas confession.)
Anyway, we've come to the purpose of today's rant.

This is a house a road over from mine. A house I have to pass every day to get to my house. A house that breaks all but one of my holiday decorating rules. And... here's the kicker... I took this picture
November freaking 18th. (And it's been up several days prior. I just didn't have my camera.)
I don't mind that other people are more festive than me. I get that I'm a Scrooge. But mid-November for a full-on light display? I've seen another house in the neighborhood that has their tree up. That doesn't bother me as much. I still think it's early, but it doesn't make me stabby. But this it way too much, way too soon.
I think it should land them on the Naughty list.
~What do you think? Am I alone in thinking it crosses the line?~
And, since you asked (wait, you didn't ask? I don't understand) maybe I'll share with you a breakdown of how this breaks all my decor rules in a future post.
