How Early Is “Too Early” For Christmas Store Decorations?
For the record, I love Christmas. It's my absolute favorite time of year and it doesn't matter what age it says I am on the ol' calendar, you're never too old to enjoy the priceless feelings you encounter between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
However, you might think the holidays last roughly 3 months -- even longer, judging by store decorations going up long before the actual holiday takes place.
My fiancee and I were shopping today and twice we saw a large amount of Christmas-themed decorations in stores. One store had wreaths and ornaments, lined up as far as the eye can see!
We do still have Halloween in three weeks, then another month until Thanksgiving.
Now, if I see any peppermint bark on store shelves, well perhaps we can just let Christmas come early every year because that stuff should be sold year-round!
It does seem like we have this conversation every year too. Have you seen any Christmas stuff up yet at nearby retailers?
