Holiday Shopping Season is Officially Here

I think I saw the first big, full-blown display of Christmas trees and snow globes and dancing elves in a store around September 15th. That's pure madness! But after I stopped fighting it in my head, I let my excited 4-year old drag me into that section of the store and we both picked up a snow globe and shook it
