Here's some stuff while I'm reworking the religion series:
- The great thing about Halloween with a 4-year-old is that she doesn't really understand that all this candy is supposed to be "hers." So her mom and I can eat it right in front of her and she doesn't object. This, I am sure, will not be true next year.
- Speaking of Halloween: It is not Hallowe'en. That's stupid. If you don't spell "shop" as shoppe or refer to your friends as Goodman Jones or Goodwife Smith, then there is no reason to spell Halloween as Hallowe'en. Unless your goal is too look like a tool, then you know, go right ahead.
- KUDL 98.1 in Kansas City started playing Christmas carols 24/7 on November 1st. I'll admit that I'm a sucker for all things Christmas, even dorky carols. And I can understand how retailers keep pushing the "Christmas season" earlier and earlier; since a big chunk of their profits are from "Christmas shopping," they naturally want to extend the time during which people will do such shopping. But really, let's draw the line somewhere.
