Once Oct. comes I put some halloween stuff out and then once it's over on Nov. 1 I start putting all of the halloween stuff away. I put some thanksgiving stuff out in the upstairs part of the house and beging decorating the gameroom for Christmas. My thanksgiving stuff never makes it to Thanksgiving day! I can't wait for September. Then we can start the Christmas build up all over again.
I feel the same as you.. once August gets here I am pumped for September! Here in PA it is usually still pretty hot in September but I am ready for my pumpkins!

Careful, Nitro! Bing just might throw some hot coffee on you.
(No! Wait! What am I saying? They would never waste any like that!)

Actually, we are all equally important here since this thread is a combination of everyone's input. I am but the one on top of the hill that gave the little snowball a push. We are all the snow that accumulates as we roll on down to the Christmas Season!

And speaking of rolling along, just look!! Already over 100 posts and 1,000 views!

Let's check in on the statistics:
Days to the Season: 313
Days to Christmas Day:355
And now UNDER 2 weeks to Milestone #1, the 300-Day Season window.

Rain here this morning, and dreary. We currently stand at 46 degrees.
It seems like recently we either get the warmth with rain or dryness with the cold. But I'm still holding out for warm and dry!
(I like a little chill at Christmas, but once we move into January, I start longing for the return of warm days.
After all, this is the South - isn't it??)

Have a Super Sunday, Friends.
Get rested up to begin moving another week closer to Christmas Season 2009.
Don't forget to keep that Christmas song in your heart and the spirit of the Season with you in all your endeavors.

Good morning! I'm getting ready to head out to the TSO concert but wanted to pop in & say a quick "hello!"

Hope you all have a great day!! (I am avoiding thinking about going back to work tomorrow!! Always tough to go back after a long break.... ah well...)

WELCOME BACK BING!!!!

Johnor - what do you mean --- like they are going to make a movie of the thrad as a Christmas Movie for 20209? Or - maybe an ongoing TV series -- about "The People On The Countdown Thread"?/ Or maybe we can bring out our own line of Christmas candy for adults -- an Advent Calendar that counts down the days to the season and you get a big candy bar for every day? Or... Maybe we can make a string of pubs named "The Christmas Countdown Thread"?

How are you doing today?

My husband and I just had a big big fight. Five minutes later, he said "I think that was the DUMBEST fight we have ever had. What do you think?" Yes, I must agree. Fights do not get any dumber than that. It almost reached the food-fight level on my part. And we have been together for 48 years. You would hope that the level of fighting would become more refined over time. But.... no.
