Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.
For me Christmas seems official when I start to hear Christmas Carols on the radio. This is never consistent though. Here in Pittsburgh they have started anywhere from the first week of November to the day after Thanskgiving (Light Up Night).

My local Walmart had slowly started putting out Christmas stuff in the Lawn and Garden section ever since Labor Day ended, but this last weekend, I went back to Walmart and discovered they had an endcap display of Christmas cards! These were the expensive Hallmark cards, and I'm holding out for the brand of cards that I like (and are cheaper) but man, it was sure nice to see new Christmas cards out on display!

Menards (lumber yard/home improvment type store) has started with their Christmas displays! Don't have the "Enchanted Forest" up yet with all the trees, but I'm sure it's coming. I can't wait to get to Wal-Mart this weekend and see what they've got out now, haven't been there in a few weeks.
