The fact that I now live in Orlando Florida and not Philadelphia Pennsylvania hit me pretty hard this weekend.
I watched the neighbors across the street putting up their Christmas tree. I watched our next door neighbors string their lights over the peak of their garage. I watched them inflate a giant Santa suited Snowman while Christmas music was blaring from their sound system. I listened to them humming Little Drummer boy as they staked plastic presents into their front yard.
How did I witness all this? Because it is 4 weeks until Christmas. It was 79 degrees.
And I was cutting my grass.
4 weeks before Christmas.
In 79 degree weather.
Listening to "Joy To The World".
I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around this right now.
