I'm putting you on notice.
For the next week and a half, every time I walk into a store and hear Christmas carols, I will turn around and Walk Out That Door. Even if all I need is a half gallon of milk.
For the next week and a half, every time I walk into a store and see Christmas displays, I will avoid that aisle and/or area like the plague. Even if it contains exactly what I need.
For the next week and a half, every time I'm scanning through the radio stations and hear Christmas carols, I will delete that station from my memory list. If it's not on my memory list, I will temporarily put it on my memory list and then delete it, just on principle.
For the next week and a half, every time I'm flipping through the TV channels and see a commercial/movie/show that deals with Christmas or holiday themes, I will continue on my way and Will Not Return to that channel until after Thanksgiving. I'll write the channel number down as a reminder if I have to.
For the next week and a half, every time I see, hear, or feel the slightest bit of Christmas and/or holiday cheer ANYWHERE, I will be Elsewhere.
Thanksgiving isn't even over, people!
Besides, Christmas is a scary Unknown Entity this year, and I'd rather not think about it if I don't have to, thankyouverymuch. I'll be hiding Over There.
