After the horrible winter most of America suffered through in 2014, summer couldn't come soon enough. But like a rude party guest, shortly after summer arrived it began announcing its imminent departure.
Yes, we know that every summer will be followed by a winter – but why do we have to push things further? It seems like every year we've barely gotten into a new season when suddenly – inexplicably – it's time to start looking forward to the next one.
Don't believe us? Check out these six examples of seasonal creep, below.

It's rough coming down from a holiday high, and apparently not just for humans.
Nicole Richie shared a photo of her dog Ero on Thursday sporting a "Christmas Hangover," she wrote on Instagram. The forlorn-looking pooch lies on the ground with his head down, but isn't ready to take off the reindeer antlers just yet.
While we can definitely sympathize with the furry guy, we have good news for Richie's German shepherd: New Year's is right around the corner! And we bet the stylish star has just the perfect party hat to replace those antlers with.

Wearing camouflage leggings and rhinestone boots, Kellie Pickler was thousands of miles away from home on Christmas Day, but she smiled as she looked out at her audience from her makeshift stage.
The country singer was in Kandahar, Afghanistan, with her husband, Kyle Jacobs, on her seventh USO tour. "There's no place I'd rather spend Christmas," she reportedly told the troops.
The former American Idol contestant, who has been working with the USO since 2007, and was on a nine-day tour in the Middle East and has been sharing pics of her experience on Twitter.

Baby North got some nice Christmas presents this year, but mom Kim Kardashian received a very special gift as well.
Kanye West didn't just get Kardashian a regular old Hermes Birkin handbag for Christmas. He turned it into a work of art by having famed painter and sometime collaborator George Condo hand-paint it with nude bodies – one with a demon's face.
It certainly is one of a kind. A risky gift for one's fiancée? Perhaps, but Kardashian, 33, seemed happy to receive it – proud enough to post it on Instagram, anyway.
Fans were divided on the present, though, with many finding the painting disturbing.
