They go on the shelves because people buy them. You have only yourselves to blame.

Is it really a War -on- Christmas if Christmas fires the first shot?

A place called The Card Factory may have a selection of all holiday's cards available all year round.

Was this a big display with dozens of different Christmas options?  Or, like the portion that the picture shows, only a small shelf with 3 packages?

FINALLY! I just got my inflatable Santa put away.

Whoever brings up War On Christmas in a serious manner deserves a cockpunch, and I say this as someone who regularly attends church.

Who gives a shait? Must we always cater to those who do everything at the last minute?

Not surprising (in the United States at least).

As far as merchants are concerned, all that's really left in this year are back-to-school, Labor Day, and then Halloween and Christmas.

Home Depot will have their trees displayed as soon as they liquidate their lawn furniture.

Time for a new version of this:

Here in the desert southwest, this creates a bit of a problem.  Many home centers will start to clear out their outdoor patio furniture stock in late September to make room for Christmas stock.  The problem is, our good weather doesn't start until October.  So just as it get nice enough outside to enjoy your patio, patio furniture becomes hard to find.

When I was shopping for a patio furniture set, I had a hell of a time finding something I wanted.  Ended up getting it from a warehouse furniture store (the Dump).

The southeast is just as bad July and August are generally too hot to use the deck much, by labor day it is nice outside yet there is no patio furniture left.  I ended up getting mine at an antique store, quality wrought iron doesn't wear out, it just needs to be painted.

Yeah! Damn pikers, always waiting until the very last 5 months!

It's never the wrong time to start an unnecessary consumption binge. Got to stimulate the ol' economy so that the ownership class gets richer.

I support the War on Christmas.

I give it about 5-7 more years, and most major stores will have a specific Christmas section where they sell the stuff year round. Of course it won't keep them from having it creep all over the store like the Giant Hogweed as December gets closer. But I think that's the direction we're going.

DoughyGuy: But I think that's the direction we're going.


If that did happen, it would only cause the number of people who suffer from Christmas burnout to rise even more.

I know a number of people who utterly loathe the Christmas season since it has become little more than a holiday all about consumerism.  I don't really blame them.

Ace Hardware by me always has some Christmas shiat out.

Came to say this.

You would think that people would remember the birthday of The Savior.

Next year we'll be complaining that Christmas stuff is out 5 months late.
 
2013-07-15 07:55:18 AM  
What, you never heard of Christmas in July?

So around here, we've got this game: the Christmas Game. It starts on January 15 every year, and the winner is the last person to hear Christmas music being played in a public place, including broadcast radio. Small snippets or references do not count; to lose, you must hear the song in a context where it's intended to be played all the way through. But if that intent is clear, then you don't have to hear the whole thing personally: you lose as soon as you identify it as Christmas music.

If, by midnight on December 1, no one has heard Christmas music in a public place, everyone wins. This has never happened, but the rule is there for completeness.

I'm not sure how many years it's been since I even made it to Columbus Day.

At least Michael's is a craft store. They have to put out stuff early enough for people to make their crafts in time for the holiday.
