Yes. I’m aware that it’s only Nov. 17.
Yes. I’m aware that Thanksgiving isn’t for another week.
Here’s the thing. This year has been so miserable that I think we should all be looking for the things that make us happy. Because there hasn’t been a whole lot of happy for a while.
So if that means I completely blow up my traditional starting times for Christmas beers, I don’t care.
So if I call up the soundtrack to “A Charlie Brown Christmas” on Spotify in mid-November because I’m driving through a snow squall? Insert shrug emoji here.
And if I decide to put up the Christmas lights on the house eight days before Thanksgiving while listening to Tony Bennett sing Christmas songs in my earbuds? It makes me happy.
And we could all use more of that. Regardless of what the calendar says.
