There is no longer a way to deny the holidays have begun. I got my first inkling when it was barely November, I was in Banana Republic and every other song they played was a Christmas tune. Then it really hit me when I went to Trader Joe's and there they were--their white icing frosted gingerbread men. Those smiling little devils that tempt and taunt my stomach and waistline throughout the holidays. I didn't think I would see them quite so early, but there they were, sitting on the shelf in their green and white box just calling to me: "buy me! eat me! get fat!" And before I knew it, I had grabbed two boxes, paid and was out the store. Those little bas***ds!! I gave in and gave up to the inevitable. The holidays are here, I will eat my way through several of these boxes* and whatever will be, will be. Break out the stretchy pants and start going through the xmas decorations. You can't resist the pull that it is "beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go!" (*Update: one box almost gone as of this posting. Glad I did get two!)
