they start earlier every year


Upon going to grab my morning coffee at 8, I was greeted with the most unpleasant site.

Holiday cups at Starbucks already?!?

It's November 9th!

And my friends wonder why I'm such a Scrooge...let's start celebrating the Christmas holiday slightly closer to its actual date. Maybe I would like it a bit more.

You're incorrect. They began last year on November 1st.

But like it says on the cup "it only happens once a year."

Gag.

I'm with you though. There's no need to celebrate the holiday season two months in advance.

Oh, but the peppermint mochas are so worth it.

Max - when i said "they", i actually meant the holidays, not Starbucks.

Bev - Yes, it does only happen once a year, but that once a year is in December. Let Thanksgiving have its time to shine!

Ripe - Haven't tried the peppermint mochas but I might need to indulge (post-November of course).
