Also, the supermarkets started selling Christmas products a while ago already!! I'm not kidding. They started selling all kinds of gingerbread, which I guess you can eat all year long. But the star-shaped, chocolate-covered gingerbread that has golden stars on the packaging is clearly christmasy - I really don't want to eat that in August!! I love chocolate-covered gingerbread, but not when it's 30 degrees outside. I wish that Christmas started with the first Sunday in Advent, that's my dream. Then I could have a birthday that would actually feel like a birthday and not like a precursor to christmas.
