When Stores Put Christmas Stuff Out in September
I was watching the news this morning, and apparently some large store chains (Target, Costco, etc) are planning to put out Christmas merchandise this month. I love Christmas. Absolutely love it. The decorations, the joy of the time between Thanksgiving and and December 24 while you wait with anticipation, the Black Friday sale kick-off of the official holiday shopping season.... but starting the "Christmas season" in September totally undermines the novelty of the holiday. If it were Christmas all year round, it wouldn't be as special, and people wouldn't appreciate it as much. Seriously, stores, you are ruining Christmas. It's not even close to Halloween and you're putting out stockings and Santa statuettes?? You should be ashamed.
