It seems that the start of November also marks the start of the festive season, if our local shops are to be believed. Especially Starbucks, with all its tinselly bits and bobs, little white Christmas trees and assorted festive-themed drinks.
Yes, I know some stores start cranking out the Christmassy stuff in October but I figure that actually means they are insane so I ignore them.
While awaiting my beverage of choice at Starbucks yesterday, I happened to mention to a workmate (who was also awaiting her beverage of choice) that every time I see tinsel I imagine it’s the result of a reindeer fart. She looked at me like I needed treatment and told me my mind was a scary place.
Meh, she should see it from this side.
Anyway, merry Christmas.
