And So It Begins

Farm and Fleet and Kmart have been running Christmas ads all week. My daughter demanded four Christmas songs at bedtime. Our leaves only began falling this week, but Christmas has already come to my house.
I have a dream that one day I will be allowed to celebrate my holidays in order. That at some point my little girl will not listen almost exclusively to Christmas music from September to February. I dream that someday we won't visit Santa in June (like we did this year thanks to a Christmas-themed amusement park in Colorado) and Elf won't be put in our DVD player until after Thanksgiving instead of in late August.
These are my dreams. Dear Santa Claus, it's all I want for Christmas.
