Please let the pumpkins rot

I found out this morning that two Kansas City radio stations are already playing Christmas music. I realize that this happens every year, and every year I complain bitterly about it. Bitterly. I know I'm perhaps a bit extreme in my "no Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving" rule, which I impose upon my entire family. I know some people do like to get started a little bit early. I know this.

But still. This early??!?! Is there anyone who wants to hear "Jingle Bells" while they're still eating Halloween candy? While there are still orange leaves on the trees? Before the Jack-o-lanterns have even had the chance to rot? Is there anyone who really enjoys Christmas music on Nov. 2? Anyone?

Humph. Anyway. Speaking of Jack-o-lanterns, here are the ones we carved this year, which are still on our front porch and have not yet started to rot. Do you hear me, Kansas City radio stations? No pumpkins rotting here!

Sorry they're a little blurry, but it's always hard for me to get good Jack-o-lantern photos. They're a kitty, a face, and a little monster:

You'd be proud of your niece. Yesterday when we took the Halloween decorations down, I took town our "Scaredy Cat" welcome sign down and asked her, "Should we put the Christmas Angel outside, or the old Schnauzer welcome sign." She looked at me like I was crazy and said, "Um, schnauzers." Its not that I wanted to put the Christmas angel up, you see, we just don't have a turkey or anything for Thanksgiving.

I checked our radio stations for Christmas music the other day. Apparently it's too early around here.

Eesh, on the radio? I understand (though I can't stand) the stores getting into it because they want to get people in the purchasing mood, but... dude, it's... Halloween was... 4 days ago...
