Anyone else feel like it's Christmas?

Or am I the only one who randomly gets Christmas feelings at random times through the year, or Christmas songs stuck in my head in July?

:santa:

British summer hasn't happened - no trip to our favourite beach to play on amusements and eat fish & chips, no walk through the local public park for a picnic or pet animals in the petting zoo, no wearing summer dresses or the summer sandals I got for my birthday, not even have I had a chance to go out without my coat...I hate hot weather, but a little sunshine is nice sometimes! Geeze!

Now it's getting dark really early, it's cold and wet, and so my body has decided that it's Christmas - had the 'Christmas feeling' for two weeks now, plus my S.A.D symptoms have come a few months early. If I don't get Christmas/Yule gifts within the next few days I think I'll cry! :lol:

It felt a very lot like Christmas when I had a cold at the end of July, but otherwise no!

It won't begin to feel like Christmas in southern California until after the entire state burns to the ground in October but the Christmas paraphenalia shows up in stores at the beginning of September, so you can't help but think about it...

I'm not even feeling like Halloween yet, and the stuff has been in the stores at least three weeks.

Doesn't seem like Christmas to me.

Get yourself full spectrum bulbs maybe they can help with S.A.D. We have had cooler weather and I get Fall feelings coming on I just hope I don't get a cold.

No, but I have Christmas songs in my head every single day of the year (John Lennon, The Pogues etc.), but I won't listen to them, because it's not Christmas!

I can't wait until Christmas!

I hate when I get Christmas songs stuck in my head any time of year. It just needlessly reminds me of the chaos and anxiety.

It feels more like summer to me.

I get that feeling sometimes. But then, I'm obsessed with Christmas.

Not at all. It feels like August to me.

One of my least favorite months of the year. It's not hard to guess why.

I hate summer. It's hot, and bright, and I'm expected to wear revealing things, and see other people wearing them, and it's just generally-miserable for me.
Fall's my favorite season. 8)
