'Christmas' Earlier Than Ever...

One of the flats in the new slum tower in front of this one has had Christmas lights up since the end of October; even more insanely early than usual, but I suppose it's this frenzy people people seem to be in , about having a 'proper'  Christmas. The horrors of these enforced-gaiety 'family' occasions...or even worse, partner's family!  make me glad to be an isolated oddity. The only 'social' good time I've ever had at Yuletide was spending it with a select few of equally weird characters.
IThis morning, I really couldn't get out of the bed, and the shower was torture. Two more sleeps until I can allow myself to switch the heat on. (By then, I will probably be mild!) I kept putting off going to the park, but actually, when the sun was out, it wasn't unpleasant.
I see Macy's Thanksgiving Parade was back this year. I seem to vaguely remember being taken by my father, and riding on his shoulders. I also recall a year when a giant balloon came loose and you could see it flying away from our high-rise window in Brooklyn. ( I may have imagined that one, though...)
