Counting the Weeks

It`s approaching, just 10 weeks to go, or so I read the other day.

Why is it, I wonder, that to say 10 weeks sounds so much shorter than saying 2½ months? Both are the same measurement.
What`s that time away – if you haven`t guessed. It`s Christmas.
It makes me wonder if the shops actually really sell any more of their Christmas lines by putting them on the shelves so early and telling us its so many weeks, or do the goods just sit there until nearer Christmas anyway?

No, I`m not going to be counting the weeks off to it yet, to me, (and I`m probably odd in this), it`s far too soon to start thinking about it, the end of November is soon enough. I`ve got my birthday to have first!
