Halloween decorations in my neighbors' yards signal the rush to the holidays is on.
On my daily walks, I'm amused by gray tombstones, skeletons, even one of a dog, witches and pneumatic ghosts and goblins. Death seems so jolly this time of year.
Halloween used to not be so big, but now it's almost like Christmas. When the trick or treating's over, the holiday season crashes upon us.
Christmas carols play in stores beginning in October. On my walk last night, I saw what suspiciously looked like holiday lights.
Thanksgiving is a quick speed bump before the Christmas season hits full gear. October to year's end rushes by so fast.
I'd like for it to slow down. But the world won't stop for me.
