    Do they always start with the Christmas commercials this early? Here in Aiken, they've already got downtown decorated. I get sick of the whole Christmas atmosphere after a while, so I'd rather they not start until, maybe, Dec. 10th or so. What about you guys, do you get tired of all the Christmas stuff, or are you of the "the more the merrier" persuasion?

    Christmas season starts the day after Thanksgiving, and not one minute sooner. I agree, I'm tired of seeing Chrsitmas stuff before they've cleared out Halloween stuff.

    The Salvation Army santa claus pops up in NY in October!!!

    I love the atmosphere. I think the Christmas spirit makes most of us better people, even if only for a short time.

    But I think October is a bit early!

    I have to say that there's something cheery about all the decorations and lights during winter. It's so depressing walking home when it's dark already.

    With all the bad stuff that goes on in this world. I think we can never get enough of a good spirit !

    A hopeless romantic, I guess.:)

    I think I'll do the Clark Griswold thing this weekend and put lights on my house. I won't be able to out do my neighbor though, that guy goes nuts!

    The new 102.7, that was originally opie and anthony, has been playing non-stop Christmas music, all day, for the past 2 weeks and will continue till Christmas. Though, it might be early, I have to agree, it kinda brings the spirit in. They have most stores decorated already, and, trees are now being delivered to the areas that they sell them. With Black Friday being this week, they will have trees being sold. Seems most people will run out and buy them starting that day. One house by my Son's school, has the entire house decorated and a tree in the window for about 2 weeks now too, this I found a little early, but everyone else is starting now too. I went out and got some new lights myself lastnight and figure on putting them outside this weekend, being it's not going to be so cold. Tis the season!!!!!!

    Don't forget the tree lighting next week in NY!!!!

    11 day vacation Green Lantern, that would be cool. Hopefully the duck and goose hunting is good for you then. Maybe you will run into Ted Nugent.:)
