Have you ventured to the mall recently? I think we skipped Thanksgiving and went straight to Christmas. I know we are in the tail end of a recession, but do retailers really have to put their Christmas decorations up so early? Shopping for candy at Target, I spotted Christmas decorations mingling the with Halloween decor. There is barely a chill in the air and the malls have us standing in line with Frosty. I love Christmas time, but it hard to maintain the magic of the holidays when shopping malls fast-forward our seasons.
