You know how people are complaining that school supplies are already on display? Well, I was shopping with my mom last Friday at a local craft store and noticed that they had CHRISTMAS decorations already on sale--and lots of them. We couldn't believe it. You can see the disbelief on her face in the picture below!

If you're in the market for a good fake tree, I can point you in the right direction. Wait, IT'S JULY. We're five months away from Christmas...I'm just sayin'.

I tried to justify why it would make sense to start selling Christmas decorations so early. I thought perhaps people need five months to get all of their crafting projects done. I mean, if you're making homemade Christmas gifts, maybe it takes five months. But, no. It's too soon! Don't you think so?!
