Christmas in July

Imagine my surprise when I was driving to work this morning and the local country music station was playing Brooks and Dunn's version of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town!"

Apparently, it shocked a lot of people.

I mean, we ARE dealing with near-100-degree temperatures down here. And, we won't even talk about the humidity and tourists.

So, what's with the Christmas music?!

It seems like every year "they" start the marketing blitz earlier and earlier.

But . . . JULY?!

The DJ came on the air after the song was over, apparently in response to a lot of phone calls. (I'm sure that was the reason for the stunt in the first place, right?!)

Anyway, he explained that it is the 25th today. "Christmas in July." We now have "only" 5 months left to buy the perfect gift(s). That's just 20 weeks, folks! Hurry before supplies run out!

Bah, humbug!

And, crank the AC.
