I remember when a Christmas parade was more like at Christmas time. Not so early as if Ridgeland is saying "let's do ours early and get it over with". And the route they now use makes it hard. No where to park. People park their cars in other people's yards. Then the homeowner's are upset about cars on the grass, rightfully so.

Why do some people always have to be negative ?

We need to ask the expert on negative KaptKangaroo that question.

@ 8: 11

I'm with you.
( To a certain extent )

However we have to understand,
it's a different world for children in 2011.

A Christmas Parade this early is not
what I would prefer either.....

However,

Let everyone enjoy the spirit of Christmas as early as they wish.

My gripe is that the "spirit" of Christmas is not celebrated year round.
