It's Christmas time at Costco.

You can complain about early Christmas display.  You can talk about capitalism and lost meanings...  "It's too early"  "It's stupid"

Or you can enjoy the view and feel stupid happy about it.

First Sign of Christmas at Costco

I enjoy looking for the first sign of Christmas at Costco. Holiday season is crazy good time.  It's only natural for me to look for it.  It usually starts with these ribbons. The ribbons came back this year as usual.  These ribbons don't scream Christmas~!.  But they will do.

Music Choice Killed Classic Christmas

(Grumpy old man)

I love Christmas.  Christmas is coming to Costco in about 3 weeks.

Music is very important for us Christmas lovers.  Along with decorations and smell of pumpkin spice, music is the element that will hold Christmas together.  I like classic Christmas tunes that will make me feel happy and sentimental.  Classic Christmas music takes me back in time.  I own 70+ Christmas CD's.  I bought my first Christmas CD from BMG CD Club 20-30 years ago. Remember BMG? Columbia House?  I used to buy records from them. Good times.

Every Christmas season I tune my cable TV channel to Sound of the Seasons, a part of Music Choice channel line-up.  They play commercial free Christmas tunes.  I enjoyed that channel every year.  Then something happened.

They started to play Christmas songs by young artists such as Brittany Spears, One Direction, In Sync...    Then last year, they rarely played classic tunes, but most of the songs they played were teeny bopper, hip hop Christmas tunes, some songs with deep heavy bass - as if I'm at Run DMC concert.

YO BABY, YO BABY YO~!!  SOME-BODY SCREAM~!!
NO~!!!

So, I stopped listening to that God awful channel.

Look at this abomination. Britney Spears is a beautiful and talented young lady.  But, that's not christmas.

But wait...

Currently, Music Choice is playing Christmas in July playlist.  But, this time, they are playing a lot of good old Christmas tunes.  They rarely play teeny bopper Christmas songs.  If they play new tunes by young artists, I actually like them.  Something has changed.  I wish they keep that up in November & December.  I am enjoying this channel again.

For example, they played this song below.  She's Jane Monheit. She's young, but I like her.  The song was released in 2007 when she was in her late 20's (?).  I like her version just as I like Kay Starr's.

To sum up - Christmas music should sound like Christmas.  Christmas music should NOT make me feel like I'm in the middle of break dance battle.  Don't drop the bass on yule log.

First Sign of Christmas 2016 - July 29

Hey, it's here.

For last several years (perhaps over 10 years?) the first sign of Christmas at Costco was these Christmas ribbons.   I always see them in late July.  Today, July 29th, at my Costco shopping, I expected to see those Christmas ribbons, and I there they were.

I was excited to see those ribbons  You know how much I love Christmas. To me, it's fun and exciting when I see the first sign of Christmas.  It so happens that Costco is the store that officially releases Christmas products the earliest.  This adds to my mental association between Costco and festive feeling.  When I think about Christmas, I think about Costco. My Christmas will not be the same without Costco.

We still have long Summer months left.  But, seeing these ribbons changes my internal energy.  Things wil be different now that Costco has officially hinted Christmas 2016.

We will have good time this Winter.  And, soon, 2016 will be a history.  So, now is time to show love to my friends and family before I look back with regret.

Enjoy~!!

Christmas 2015 - Cubicle Decoration

Merry Christmas

Here are some of the pictures of my cubicle at work.  I wasn't able to enjoy Christmas last 2 years, but I'm back stronger than ever.  I had so much fun so far.  It's been glorious. I am sad that the season is almost over.  But, we still have almost 2 more weeks to enjoy.

Who cares if Christmas was created by greedy corporate people?  I thank God for greedy corporate people.

Some people try to make it a point NOT to celebrate Christmas, so they can stand againt the culture molded by capitalistic "pigs" - and they hope that I would avoid this 2 months of absolute joy every year.  All I can say to them is... Merry Christmas~!!!

Look!  I found Christmas product at Costco today (July 21, 2015).
Christmas season has officially started at Costco.  We have 5+ long months to enjoy.

Sadly, I lost Christmas spririt for last 2 years.  I went through depression 2 years ago.  And I was mellow last year.  Now I feel fantastic, I flew to San Francisco and Georgia making new friends.  but I am still single.

Well, it's all good.  There's nothing to worry about.  It's Christmas time.  I am hoping for Christmas miracle.  :)

Merry Christmas~!  Thank you for keeping touch, some of you.. especially 2 years ago. :)

First Sign of Christmas 2014

I saw the first sign of Christmas at Costco on July 25, 2014.

I don't like getting old.  I am losing excitement on Christmas... I am tired and busy.  I just want to lay down and take a nap.

I hope I will enjoy Christmas this year.  Last Christmas was the worst time of my life (some of you remember... it's getting close to 1 year already)

God bless everyone.

I am sorry for not updating my blog.  Things are changing.  I've been busy.  I am not negative.  I am positive... I'm just busy.  Keep in touch.

I was distracted buring the Christmas season that I almost didn't post this.

I made a ham on Christmas day.  I bought the ham a week before (from Costco).   I made some quick basic side dishes.

Christmas time is here at Costco.  I am very happy and excited.

My new job is much less stressful, so I will have time to enjoy this holiday season.  I will not spend a lot of money this year.  There will be no Christmas tree.  I am carefully saving money for next Christmas (2014).  I plan to buy a car with whatever the cash I saved.

Have fun.  Don't complain that it's too early for Christmas.  Don't be one of those people who complain, but be the person who enjoy Christmas in August at Costco.

Ah~~ four months to enjoy Christmas at Costco.
