I was in SAMs club last week and they had tons of Christmas stuff out.

I guess I'm old....I long for the good ole days when Christmas wasn't allowed to appear until after the Thanksgiving Day Parade!! It has gotten so commercial :-(

I've seen one for a concert here in Knoxville in Dec. All of the stores here have decorations already.

I used to collect Hallmarks, Had over 200 of them, had to sell them in
a moment of desperation. That killed me.

I'm looking for "Freezemister or the Hotmister"
anyone have it and want to sell????

I would get them for 1/2 off the day after Christmas

Our Sam's do not have decorations. Not seen any yet. Our stores are really playing up fall decorations and Halloween candy.
No commercials but I hope they bring back the M & M commercial with Santa, I smiled every time they aired it last year. I also love the Hershey kisses bell ringers. They can get rid of the others. Our kids and Grandkids are grown so not much fun. Our three Great Grands don't live close, Christmas isn't as much fun now.

I'm not surprised. Back to school sales here started before school even ended for the last term. Last year I couldn't find a pair of shorts in August . . . in my Florida area where it was too hot to wear anything else. I was told to check back in April of the next year. What's sad is that by the time December is here and we want Christmas ornaments, etc. the Valentines Day stuff will have crowded out Christmas.

The ONLY Christmas commercial that makes sense this early is Radio City Christmas Spectacular/Rockettes because performances start very early November and seats sell out quickly, mostly well in advance. But the stores putting out their holiday merchandise already is crazy. There's Santa standing right next to witches and pumpkins and poor Thanksgiving is shoved aside.
