    It's coming up to the end of September and what do I see in the shops? Christmas decorations. Why so early? What is wrong with waiting until the middle of November? That would still be a tad too early if you ask me. I'm not a Christmas grump. I like Christmas. But it isn't Christmas and I don't want shops pretending that it is.


    I will be writing to Santa about this. :evil:

    Don't feel too bad. Out here, they ususally wait until Halloween is over to put up the Christmas stuff. By the time Christmas actually rolls around, I'm near homicidal from hearing Jingle Bells for nearly 3 months. LOVE Christmas but hate the commercialism of it. Bah Humbug! ;)

    Think yourself lucky mate. It could be worse.

    I used to work for Harvester Restaurants and come the end of September all our piped music would change to the Xmas stuff. Try listening to Rudolf the effing red nose reindeer for three months :evil:

    I still hate bloody Xmas :( ......... :wink:

    Yip, went to Target a couple days ago and there's an aisle of Christmas crap right next to all the Halloween crap. Ticks me off royal. It's Halloween, Thanksgiving, then Christmas! Quit mixing them up! Finish one first, damn it! :x I refuse to do anything Christmas, including shop, until after Thanksgiving.

    unfortunately we don't have here the haloween :(
    On the one hand that's good - we don't want to cpy everything from all over the world. but on the other hand - almost every Polish celebrity is sad and depressing, memorizes something bad in the past. Nothing to have fun, nothing to sing and play.

    But going back to the topic - here shopkeepers put Christmas decorations at the beginning of december. Sometimes a week earlier. But what is funny - my neighbour still has christams lamps in front of his house :)

    You poor guy. Pan Pipes is bad enough, but Pan Pipes doing Christmas songs. :( I get blasted with that at Christmas to. But it's my mum playing it from the kitchen for me and it normally only lasts a couple of weeks.
