It actually might be an anti-seasonal post.
Our little supermarket in town put up their Christmas decorations
dubbed "holiday decorations" (but all I could see were candy canes and elves), yesterday.
I had a chat with the store manager, essentially asking "Why so soon?"
She told me that corporate instructions were to get the Christmas decorations up
Halloween night, but they actually held off until yesterday, November 2nd.

just gets forgotten, sidelined.
This quiet, soft, subtle time of the year is swallowed up
somewhere between hurried-Halloween and corporate-Christmas.
Bah Humbug is all I have to say...
