The 12 Days of Pittsburgh, N'at

Don't look now, but Christmas is already here, thanks to this amazing YouTube video.

I reject allowing any Christmas into my life prior to Black Friday.I believe in Thanksgiving. I refuse to believe I can purchase Christmas cards at my local Target store two weeks before Halloween.

I won't acknowledge the store displays of lit lawn reindeer or seven-feet tall air-filled snowmen when the bikinis are still on the clearance racks.

I roll my eyes when my friends on Pinterest give up on pumpkin-ing the spice out of every single recipe as soon as fall nears and start peppermint-ing everything from their coffee recipes to their homemade face mask recipes two weeks into fall. "It only stings a little and your face smells like a candy cane all day!"

BUT! I cannot not share this video that landed in my inbox this week, despite the fact that it just oozes Christmas

The 12 days of Pittsburgh N'at.



Although if I was writing the lyrics it would have ended with, "And no traffic on Parkway Eassssssst!"

Because that's the true meaning of Christmas.
