Monday Sparks

Today we are pawticipating in 
McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks blog hop
This hop is all about spreading cheer and positive vibes via quotes.
Mom and I will be pawticipating in this Monday fun spreading pet cheer and positive vibes.

WARNING do not adjust your glasses...this is for REAL
As you know, my peeps walk at Crabtree Valley Mall 5 days a week.
On July 26, 2018...they were astounded and befuddled when they saw
Christmas Decorations in a small area of the mall...

Exhibit 1

Then they saw the sign that read 151 days til Christmas.
So you know mom, she'll do anything for a post so we are about to offer you your very first
Sparks for Christmas 2018.  We think this Sparks speaks for itself.

and it appears the Mall intends to remind us exactly how many shopping days til

    In the Great Down Under Parts, Christmas in July is the excuse for drinking mulled wine and eating heartily, it being winter at that time there... but I don't think I realised that it originated in the Carolinas!!! (according to the great paedia of the cloud...)

    Much too early to be counting sleeps yet!!! Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Oh geez, I can't believe the Christmas decorations are already out over there! That is just ridiculous.

  3. We think that's terrifying! You should have warned us.

  4. oh is it that time again? merry christmas in july! we are off now to write our wish lists...

  5. I like your Spark and yeah while the small section that is decorated for July is way too early I am good with it. Why not think happy thoughts of a time that we all seem to enjoy. My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving but as long as the Christmas decorations don't stay up until Christmas I'm just going to go with it... :) I worked with Hallmark so you are talking to someone who rolled out the ornaments in July!

  6. Mom has been watching Christmas movies on Hallmark Channel for the whole month. We love Christmas in July!

  7. Every year we get reminders of Christmas coming further and further away from actual Christmas! Retailers want to get everyone fired up to BUY now! We love Christmas but it's tough to think about when it's in the 90s....

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom too

  8. Oh Well, I guess Christmas can't come too soon for some people. Hope you have a really good day.

  9. yes, it is early. But, also saw XMAS stuff being put out in Hobby Lobby and Walmart too.

  10. this is really pushing it, even for a mall... first it was before TG, then before Halloween, now JULY??? oh MY..... it is interesting and very good photo fodder for blogging though

  11. Oh my word, Christmas decorations! Now, that is early - they at least wait until late October in our area.

  12. Okay, Momma says she LOVES Christmas, but that's just TOO EARLY!!

  13. What!?!? ONLY another 151 days to go...gosh and I haven't even written my LOOOOOONG list of wants to Santy Paws yet
    Loves and licky kisses
    Princess Leah xxx

  14. Whoa, that's some hard-core advertising!

  15. We love your Spark - that is a very good way to think about giving. BUT holy cow, decorations already?????? Mom was just thinking about planning for a fall wreath for the door, not Christmas!!!

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  16. Hooray for Christmas, I'm always ready!

  17. We don't think Christmas can come early enough!
    Sorry we're so behind again. Mom's been getting ready for a big renovation, running around like a crazy person. Well ... crazier person.
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  18. Great Spark!! I love Christmas so I think that is a great idea.

  19. Ghostwriter says she thought it was back-to-school time at the stores and malls. But Christmas in July???? (Actually at the nursing home some of the little old ladies have been watching Christmas in July movies on the Hallmark channel. Ghostwriter just rolls her eyes. But the old ladies love it.)

  20. Wow......pretty amazing! Mom hasn't seen any Christmas decorations yet but she did see Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel!

    Hugs, your guy Raz and The Florida Furkids

  21. food servizz gurl haz been ta a few storez that waz puttin stuff out two.... we iz knot fanz oh burd day bye any meenz, but for reel......labor dayz knot even heer yet !!! ☺☺♥♥

  22. We've heard of Christmas in July for getting started on making your crafty holiday gifts (Joann's always does sales for it) but have never seen a display at a mall. It never hurts to plan ahead.

  23. Mom was in Hobby Lobby the other day and they already have Christmas decorations out for sale!
    Hazel & Mabel

  24. Maybe they were celebrating Christmas in July!

  25. That's a good idea. Nothing beats the heat like Christmas scenes

  26. HOLY SNOWBALLS! Already??! wells, Ma has been dreamin' of snow in all this heat, so I guess it's not such a bad thingie! BOL!!!
    Ruby ♥

  27. OMD!!!!! Noooooooo. And people wonder why some of us get just a little tired of Christmas carols waaaaay before Christmas! -- And I absolutely love Ruby's "Holy Snowballs" exclamation!

  28. Hee! Hee!!! What a reminder!
    When Mom worked in Victoria BC their office was right over a Christmas Shop. Mom says it was terrifically busy all summer long and to this day, Mom is NOT a fan of Christmas music...
    Merry Christmas in July to you guys!
