As I sit here, gazing out the window at all the snow (and, btw, watching baseball- Team USA vs the Yankees; a bit strange), a thought occurred to me; how come you never hear anyone say "oh, the winter went by so fast." I don't think even people who claim to like winter ever say that. Please correct if I'm wrong.
I was one of the people complaining about how the Christmas merchandise was on display in October and the Valentine's Day stuff was out the day after Christmas. However, you'll never hear me complain about how early the spring/Easter merchandise comes out. It puts a smile in my heart, knowing winter and snow will be soon behind us.
