    Is the Christmas Holiday coming earlier this year???

    I stopped in at Lowe's tonight...and they are putting Christmas decorations out on the shelves...fake trees, lights, ornaments...on September 15. That's got to be some kind of record for a store doing a major roll-out of Christmas stuff.

    In other news...it's impossible to buy a gas can around here that's over one gallon in size...

    on second thought, that might look bad walking into the airport.

    Thanks anyway, but I'll manage. It was just for a little project that I can put off 'til later...

    Yeah I started seeing some Christmas stuff... grant you mostly in a craft store but still...

    I can't stand how early stuff for the Holidays gets rolled out any more... heaven forbid you wait until the week before Halloween to look for a costume... all the good stuff goes 2 - 3 weeks before

    The craft stores make a liiiiiiittle bit of sense for those crazy people that like to make all sorts of decorations themsleves... crafts take time so you need to start early.

    That doesn't account for prepackaged ornaments though

    Or other stores putting Christmas stuff out

    Re: Is the Christmas Holiday coming earlier this year???

    Since it's probably going to snow by mid October, I'm going to start putting up my Christmas lights next week. I'm going to incorporate Halloween, Easter and The 4th as well, so in case of a mini ice age, I should be set.

    10 years ago, when I worked at Walmart, they use to at least wait until half of their halloween stuff was off the shelves. Give it another 5-10 years, they'll just start putting everything up in July and leaving it there until January.
