As someone who got home a little after 1:30am from setting up her store to be covered in red, please be gentle. I understand its the middle of November and we are decorating our stores with Christmas products from wall to wall. I’m assuming most of you are folks who don’t like getting their Christmas shopping done early like some (read: me) of us do. Plus, I love Christmas. I love Starbucks (most of the time). Put those two together and you have one happy girl on your hands. So, for my sake, go to your local ‘Bucks and take a look at all the pretty (some tacky I will even admit but wont tell you which ones) holiday items for sale. Get yourself a holiday beverage in a red cup with a holiday sleeve along with a holiday pastry in a holiday pastry bag. Actually, tomorrow, day of red cups and red stores, they should be sampling like crazy so you may even get freebies. Christmas music doesn’t start till the day after Thanksgiving so your safe from that, just soak in the red.
