Rushing the season!

I don't believe it. We've already seen some 'Christmas' decorations out in stores! Now, I love Christmas--and decorating; but this is ridiculous.  It's only September!

Personally, I think the 'start' of the month of a holiday is plenty of time to start decorating for it, specially if the holiday is near the end of the month. I don't even want to think about Christmas decorating till Thanksgiving is over.  By the time mid-December gets here, we'll all be tired of hearing about it!

Speaking for all the children born in a Holiday month , mine being December, I totally agree. I come from a large family dynamic . All my cousins not born in December had their special day. It was their time . Their parents, Aunts and uncles saw to it. But For us born in December they always ran thanksgiving , Christmas , our birthdays together. Everyone was either getting ready for thanksgiving or getting over it. My day is the 8th so that was tree cutting day for most of the families . I got Happy  birthday Merry Chritmas From thanksgiving all the way to New Year's Eve 

they would say " Just in cae i forgot.

And sadly by December 26, they will have Valentines stuff out. I worked in retail (advertising) over 30 yrs ago. It was always the same then..rush ad copy, mdse, and prep way ahead of time. The days, weeks, months, and years were a blur. Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas mdse is already up at area stores here. It all comes down to greed and profit..nothing about the season or holiday.. I miss the nostalgia from years gone by.

I love love love Christmas but I agree with ya Altara.  My sister in law and I went to Hobby Lobby about 3 weeks ago to look at some of the new Fall items, and what did I see when I walked in the door?  You got it, Christmas decorations winking, blinking, and nodding at me.  Crafty little store owners trying to temp us Christmas lovers.  I told my sister in law to slap my hand if I picked anything up, LOL.  I will be honest however, the other day I walked into a store and low and behold, a beautiful Christmas Moose!  I'm sorry but I HAD to have it.  I love it and I hid it in my closet so no one would see I caved, LOL.  Only my best friend has seen it as I snappd a pic real quick and sent to her.  I will get him back out soon and show him to ya.  He is just so dog gone it cute!!

Boo, gobble gobble, ho ho ho everyone.

I know exactlly what you mean. They should fill the shelves

With the holiday or event at hand. Right now we enter fall. Let them put things that pertain to fall. Not christmas. Yes christmas is very important to me i believe and faith in Christ. But we are talking about stores full of greed wanting that extra buck.
