Summer is not even over yet and the first Christmas/Holiday/Winter press release has just landed in my inbox. As I'm writing this, the sun is beating down on me from a window above and I'm feeling rather hot and uncomfortable, like I'm going to get a sunburn if I stay in direct sunlight for much longer. Thinking about snow and Christmas and winter is hilarious to me right now. This must be what it feels like to live in the southern hemisphere at Christmastime.
Despite the whimsical timing of this announcement, I'm loving the sound of it. When these come out in October, I'll definitely be picking up at least half of them. Just thought I'd share!
