Christmas BEFORE Halloween?

I know, you all thought my next post would be about my vacation, right?
Well, I promise that I will write about that next.

But I can not believe that the US is getting their Christmas paraphernalia out!

I came to the US today to close on my house...very happy occasion! (another post too!)
I was wandering in and out of stores, checking out what will be my new home stores (no Target, oh no :(!! )

and they all have out Christmas stuff!

That is just way too much for me...
promise to write about the vacation next!!

Maybe it's the Latin influence? Christmas season always started Oct. 1 in Caracas.

Miss you! I have to email you some disturbing news.

Good to have you back. Yes, it is ridiculous about commercial marketing of holidays. Hallow'een is not here yet, and there have been special trick or treat candies on the shelves for about a month now. Meanwhile, one aisle over? Yes, they are setting out the Christmas decorations. It is pretty crazy. Sounds like good news down in the Keys?

That´s crazy! It´s not even Nov. yet!!
I´m glad they don´t start that early here.
Can´t wait to here more about your house!
