Yes, I have started seeing Christmas Decorations and products in some of the shops here making me wonder if Geneva isn't a little bit overdoing it. Anyway, isn't it time that we suggest to them promoting the Santabunnywitch so that we could just buy the one product line three times a year: Santabunnywitch eggs, Santabunnywitch sweets and Santabunnywitch presents.

Grrr, I was driving home 2 week ago after a 15 hour day in the office ( mind you this was 2 weeks prior to Halloween ) My usual drive home when something caught the corner of my eye, Fat guy, white beard, red suit, Thought the long hours were playing tricks on me !!!! Nope sure enough (I just had to pull into the parking lot ) there it was the first official Chrismas display !!!!!!!

Seriously folks can we please go back to waiting till after Thanksgiving ???????
I can see it now we will be spending our 4th of July weekend running to do Christmas shopping to beat the crowds in a couple years,,

We talk about rushing things but this is just getting out of controll, Sure the retail guys love it...

Can we just enjoy each holiday for what they are and not force the next one before the prior has even gotten here ???

Should stop now before I get in trouble

Merry X-mas and a happy new year :tazz:

My dad has always been good about this. We always decorate the day after Thanksgiving.

What gets me is that I received 2 christmas cards at the end of last month and 1 at the beginning of this month. Now that is getting sad, just why do people have to do this so early?.

You are presuming that they are early. It could well be that they are late, very late.

My wife works in retail, talk about a night mare.

the other day she came home from work and was complaining about the fact that they are already getting their christmas merchandise in. then to top it off Santa is coming to the mall on monday to start his daily ritual.

as for christmas shopping, well I start doing that the day after christmas, thats when everything is reasonably priced. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Walked my son to school today, and the crews were out hanging Christmas wreathes from the streetlights and the library has their tree set up in the front window. Sigh.
