    OMG - Avon has started showing their Christmas commercials. Seems like Christmas commercials start earlier and earlier each year. At least let us get through Halloween......sheesh!

    What about the Christmas decorations in the store before Sept was over? I am so sick of Christmas before it gets here that it's so hard to enjoy. I want the seasons back the way they used to be. Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and then give us Christmas!!! That's my rant for the day! LOL

    Around here the ice cream trucks that crusie the neighborhoods have already begun playing Christmas tones.
    How those people who drive can listen to those same songs hour after hour after hour is beyond me.

    I just saw that commercial yesterday and thought the same thing! I don't even want to admit that it is halfway through October already!

    They used to start after Halloween but getting earlier and earlier each year. Can't tell you how many Christmas catalogs, requests for donations, Christmas return address labels and 2012 calendars I've put into the recyling can lately.

    At the convenience store where I work, Christmas music goes on the day after Halloween. Did you all realize there are at least 13 different versions of "Twelve Days of Christmas" & Miss Piggy sings one of them. I do not like that song, but Miss Piggy was the absolute worst :thumbdown: The music was on a 24 hr. loop, so everday at 3:22, we got to hear Miss Piggy.

    My DGD (she is 6) even asked why were Christmas things up before Halloween? I don't want to decorate after seeing it in stores for months ahead of time. I wish retailers would wait til at least November.

    Lots of folks must not agree, because the Christmas aisles at our Hobby Lobby have been very crowded ever since the Christmas things were put out. Personally, I love looking at them and making plans. To each his own I guess. I'm just a big Christmas person, and love to decorate.

    We used to laugh at my Aunt Nora because she put her Christmas decorations up on Thanksgiving Day. Now I find myself doing the same thing.

    My Grandsons birthday was Saturday 10-15, didn't want to buy special b-day paper, so I wrapped it in Christmas wrap (in the closet). He didn't want to open it and saved it for last, saying it was for Christmas !! Didn't expect that!!

    We go from Halloween to Christmas. Thanksgiving is the forgotten holiday.

    I must be older that I think. I remember when the Christmas decorations in the stores went up the day after Thanksgiving.
