A Pipe Dream Christmas


Err, Thanksgiving isn't really celebrated in England.

With the exception for the mad rush  
by the American ex-pat community
to Whole Foods on High Street Kensington...
most inhabitants of the UK blindly ignore this Thursday.

While we will pause to celebrate with our American friends,
I do feel that living on the original side of the Mayflower's journey
and in a land void of Pumpkin Spice Lattes or desserts... 
I fall exempt from the
"I will not acknowledge Christmas until Thanksgiving is over" rule.

Which, by the way, I think that is a hilarious argument... 
it's like equal rights for holidays.

Do people, like, honestly care?

Can't we all just celebrate whatever we want, whenever we want...
& skip the passive aggressive facebook statuses?

{Though I do feel "thankful" for facebook's "hide' feature in such cases...}

But anyway,
back to the topic:
Christmas!

As someone who is exempt from the post-Thanksgiving-celebration laws,
I've already started window shopping.

Yup. 
I'm awful.

Before you judge, please know this:
I live directly off Oxford Street
- the epicenter of charming Christmas retail -
and the absence of Thanksgiving 
already has us in full holiday swing here.

These types of visions really can't be avoided.

And I mean, 
if you're gonna make a Christmas list the first week of November
and offend people for your non-chronological celebrating...
you might as well shoot for the stars and go big, right?

So, without further adieu,
I present my Fantasy Christmas List...
complete with $19,000 earrings.

Or for any of the Thanksgiving purists out there,
I'll happily take any of these in November.
