Christmas

Okay this will be short, but WHAT IS WITH PEOPLE AND CHRISTMAS BEFORE THANKSGIVING. I hate seeing christmas shit up in every store and adds on tv before Thanksgiving. STOP IT AMERICA. The day after thanksgiving go for it and I won't say anything but i feel like every year it gets earlier and earlier and at some point maybe we will celebrate christmas and then the day after start preparing for the next one. I wish they would just wait until after thanksgiving. I think im going to go sleep until turkey day so I dont have to see anymore commercials or walk into any stores covered in decorations.

End Rant

By the way I do not dislike christmas in the least I just hate all this early stuff.

^^^ yeah, its the most profitable season of the year. If malls could have the Christmas season go from the beginning of September to the end of May they would.

It gets earlier and earlier because brick & mortar stores have lost a ton of sales to the internet. That's why they start early now- to try and catch you before you hide behind the computer in December.

Retailers know that alot of people start their Christmas/holiday shopping early to avoid crowds and it's also a subliminal message to others to get ready (earlier, people tend to spend more because of more income - further out, than last minute) Major retailers are nothing more than "money vacuums" - I try to shop at my leisure year round for things that fit certain folks and usually from around the world so it's unique to that person instead of what's on sale or is the "main craze". Others I give something they need like $$$

I showed up to work this morning to find all kinds of Christmas decorations hanging from everywhere :

I work with a lot of women, one of which I am sure lives by what the retailers do.

I hit my head against this one silver bow like five times today alone!!!!

Ditto. Fucking Walmart starts stocking Xmas stuff once the halloween stuff is almost gone. They just push the halloween stuff back to make room.
