Yesterday, we went to our local grocery store. Along the way, I was admiring the bright autumn colours.
Then we stepped into the grocery store and were immediately presented with shelves of Christmas candy, including these:
They're chocolate and white chocolate 'mini-pints' with a beer-flavoured creamy centre. Um, no thanks.

Today we spent the day in Letterkenny to see a photography exhibition. Things are really autumnas-y there!
The Christmas lights are strung across Main Street.
This hotel wasn't sure what to focus on, so covered their bases by having an autumnal display in the bottom window and a Christmas tree on the two floors above that.
When we got back to the bus station to catch the bus home, we saw that they're getting ready at the shopping centre, too.
They're putting the lights up on the roof--Merry Christmas from Letterkenny Shopping Centre. And you can just see a decoration hanging off the side of the lamp post on the right.

Might as well get it all up while they have the weather for it!

I know a lot of people don't like 'Christmas creep,' but I do. We don't do Christmas in the usual way anyway, and it's always been a season for me, not a day, so I'm already listening to certain kinds of Christmas music and enjoying the last quarter of the year--my happy time.
Happy Autumnas!

I love all your Autumnas photos, the colors are beautiful! Christmas has popped up everywhere here in the stores but I haven't seen anything along the streets or houses/businesses yet.

There's no Thanksgiving here, so nothing in between Halloween and Christmas (Bill and I do our own little Thanksgiving anyway). Christmas candy starts coming out before Halloween stuff. The other thing is Easter. I saw Cadbury Creme Eggs in the shop a couple days after Christmas last year! Crazy.
