Christmas in September!
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?
