Christmas in September!

9/22/2010:

Might as well make Christmas 365 days a year

Back when I was a kid – I seem to recall that the Christmas countdown didn’t officially start until we saw Santa Claus at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade (which by the way – the Macy’s Studio in Hoboken where they design the balloons and floats will now call Carlstadt, NJ home after decades in the Mile Square.)

At the very least – they used to wait until after Halloween to start the holiday promotions.

Home Depot stores in New Jersey are already setting up the Christmas decorations and trees – in September, when it’s still 90 degrees out!

Who buys a Christmas tree now?

LMAO. Lo and behold!!! I’m listening to I-Tunes Classic soul network (just surfing) and the Christmas music is already on the air with a tune by Stevie Wonder “someday at christmas”.

I’m all for the Holiday season, but it does seem to be starting earlier and earlier. The only gripe I have is that when they make room for all the Holiday trimmings (lights, tree balls, etc) you have to travel the store to find where they moved everything to.

😆 It’s like major department stores want to make sure that we DON’T forget Christmas!

Once I went to Lowe’s the first week of December to buy Christmas lights and couldn’t find any so I asked a salesperson. They said I should have come back in September because they were done with Christmas and pointed me to the bargain Christmas aisle with its slim pickings.

LOL!

Even though I don’t see the sense in this: I’ve noticed that holiday lights do tend to sell out sooner than they should, which is why this year I’m gonna get my lights early :).[quote comment=”197828″]Once I went to Lowe’s the first week of December to buy Christmas lights and couldn’t find any so I asked a salesperson.
