Bradenton area will be better when political signs are replaced by holiday decorations
Christmas stuff starts too early.
That's how I felt.
Hearing holiday songs in the first week of November?
Not this year.
I'm already rocking Christmas on 92.1 FM.
And not just when the fiancée controls the radio.
Last week, I bought a fresh DVD of "A Christmas Story" and cooked us a ham dinner with mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce.
Yep, the holiday season has begun in our happy home.
After a terribly long and turbulent political season I want Christmas cheer for the rest of the year.
The sights, sounds, smells:
Especially the sights.
Give me light displays that qualify as Griswoldian.
