Man Breaks Into Home, Decorates for Christmas

Is it not enough for department stores, radio stations, and retailers to bombard us with Christmas music, decorations, and candy cane madness before the Thanksgiving turkey even hits the table, now home intruders are unleashing premature Christmas-ness on the public, too. Seriously.

WHIO reports that a Vandalia, Ohio family came home to find a complete stranger sitting on their couch. 44-year-old Terry Trent had apparently made himself at home, lighting a candle to create some ambiance.

Cops say Trent was high on bath salts, but nevertheless apologetic to the 11-year-old who stumbled upon the intruder. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to scare you. I'll get my things and go," he said, according to the report.

But that's not all. After entering the home, Trent did Christmas decorating. Why? Who knows — he was high on bath salts — but it's just the latest indication that tinsel and reindeer will probably begin appearing before Halloween in 2012. Lord help us all.
