I went to Costco today....

...and they had Christmas stuff for sale, and I even heard a Christmas song playing somewhere there in the background. I wanted to cry. It wasn't even Christmas. I saw my first pumpkins less than a week ago, and now we're already to Christmas?

Sometimes I wonder why they even bother to take down the Christmas decorations at all. Maybe Christmas only comes once a year, but does it really have to last three months?!

They were playing Christmas Songs at the Brookstone Store at the Philly Airport yesterday. I about lost it!!

We're seeing commercials for Christmas stores (the ones that ONLY come around for Christmas) that have now become Halloween stores. Frankly, that's the only sales pitch that make sense (I mean, the folks can't make money any other time of the year, so why not diversify?).

Still it was weird to see Dan's Christmas Store decked out in boughs of gloom and doom...

That is exactly why my Christmas Personal Traveller is available from September 1st! Christmas stuff is in the shops before the children go back to school
