It’s December Holiday Season Already?

What is up with all the Christmas/Hanukkah decorations?!! It was like I blinked my eyes on Halloween, and the holiday elves  turned everything from orange/black to red/white, and moved all orange and black candy and creepy motion activated cackling wall mounts into the $.05 bin.

I’m not an Ebenezer Scrooge, but seriously, give us consumers some more transition time! This whole speed of light switch-a-roo is just way too jarring.

Besides, it’s not like there aren’t other holidays that come between Halloween and Christmas.  What about Veterans Day?!! Shouldn’t CVS be covered head to toe in American flags?!! Think July 4th decorations, but in November.  What about Thanksgiving! Tons of fake cornucopias, stuffed turkeys or pilgrim hats?!!

Until I celebreate these two important and historical holidays that come before the yuletide, I’m saying “BAH HUMBUG!”

  1. Oh, Rebecca, I am so with you! Walk into the store now and…aargh, already!?

    But you know, honor, remembrances, giving thanks for what we already have – those are nice sentiments, but they just don’t bring in cash.

  2. On November 1, the day after Halloween, stores seem to think it is the start of the holiday season. You see TV commercials for the holidays already. Can’t they wait until middle November to start putting holiday stuff out? It seems to start earlier every year.
