Some countries switched last weekend. The U.S. switches this weekend. I wish they’d just leave it alone and stop doing it altogether, but we know how gubmints like to muck with us, right?
All it means that it’ll be dark when we leave work.
And Christmas sales will start (actually, they started before Halloween, didn’t they?)
And Christmas Muzak will start on the PA systems in stores, driving most of us crazy within a week (and feeling sorry for the employees of those stores who have at least 7 more weeks of incessant jingle-bell music!).
And Santa will show up in his chair in the mall before having partaken of the Thanksgiving Feast.
Speaking of the Thanksgiving Feast, this is when our thoughts turn to “Is there anything new I can sneak onto the Thanksgiving table this year without too much uproar from those who want the traditions to remain the same?” Probably not, but that’s not to say some of us aren’t going to try!
