'Tisn't the Season

Walmart has its Christmas trees
For sale, for goodness’ sake!
Guess they won’t dry out, though,
‘Cause, of course, those trees are fake.

But hey, it’s just October first,
With short-sleeved shirts still worn.
The stores have barely gotten in
Their stock of candy corn.

Celebrate the orange first
Before the red and green;
And keep in mind that Chanukah, 
This year, falls in-between.

But many people just can’t wait
For Christmas spending sprees,
So chompers-at-the bit, enjoy,
For Walmart sure agrees!

    Wow, how do you keep coming up with these gems. I adore your sense of wit. You always keep me in stitches. Great poem.

    It always gets on my nerves to see holiday décor, candy etc. months before the actual holiday, but I guess everyone wants a jump on the bargains and to pick through the premature inventory.
