Halloween JUST happened. It's barely the 2nd day of November and I've already seen a Christmas commercial on TV. And not just one either. I saw the same Christmas Commercial more than once tonight. It was an old one from Lowe's Hardware that they first played last year; and it wasn't even very clever then when it was new. But somewhere in the long food-chain that exists between me and the person who schedules prime-time Thursday night TV on NBC someone decided that I needed to see the very first, extremely premature, Christmas Commercial of the year.
And they didn't even have the common decency to at least make it a new commercial.
I hate this time of year.
