Christmas shopping season opens; Macy's Unveils Tree
Today's sign of the end times.
I have now packed away the Halloween decorations and arrayed the living room in gourds and turkeys.
When I was little, my mother had a couple of little turkeys and some turkey salt and pepper shakers that she brought out when setting the table for Thanksgiving. I think I have gone in for a broader collection of turkeys (displayed for most of November) as my way of pushing back against the premature Christmas onslaught.

Yes, I have been socking away various gifts all year. But the Christmas shopping season? That hasn't started yet.
