Christmas Grumble!


I love this time of year, it’s Autumn time,

with pumpkins in the fields for Halloween,

to leave out autumn would be such a crime

yet people seem to think it’s a has-been.

Why is there so much Christmas stuff about

when that season is still three months away?

Freshly Pressed has got a Christmas post out

and Christmas mug’s on 20 Lines today!

We’ve still another ten days left to go

before the ghouls and witches gives us frights

and then we have the fireworks and the show

of bonfire, Guy Fawkes and his noisy night.

And even then it’s seven weeks before

Christmas comes a-banging on our door.

I’m sick of seeing Christmas things about

It’s Halloween I keep wanting to shout out!

    • Glad to find someone who agrees.
      Stupid isn’t it?
      Yet people don’t seem to get it. They’re wishing their lives away.
      And this time of year is so lovely, with all the autumnal decorations and the weather not too chilly.

  1. House of Fraser have their christmas decorations up already. I despair.

    • Drives you mad, doesn’t it?
      I know the shops have to get it all done early, but can’t we have one festival finished before they’re trying to drag us into the next but one?
