It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...at least at WalMart
I can't believe Halloween is almost here. Before you know it Thanksgiving and then Christmas will be here. Of course stores are already displaying Christmas stuff. I don't know why WalMart insists on starting Christmas 3 months before everyone else. The whole north end of our store is dedicated to holidays this time of year. You walk past the aisles of fattening Halloween candy that they purposely place right across from the health section with it's selection of Slim Fast and diet patch display, then you head into the land of autumn-colored place mats and plastic cornucopias that they have on display for Thanksgiving, and into the winter wonderland that is set up for Christmas, complete with trees, singing elves, and toy trains running through the little villages. By the time Christmas actually comes I'm sick and tired of seeing all the decorations and that cinnamon smell they coat everything with gets so annoying. I try to avoid it as much as possible so that I don't get Christmas-ed out too early lol.
