We were at Target today and they already have a long wall dedicated to christmas lights and decorations (reindeer snow men etc...)

It's not even freaking October yet!

I think I'm the only person who doesn't mind. I love the fall holiday season: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. It's my favorite time of year.

I'm right there with you. Love it all.

And for those of you bitching that Christmas decorations should be sold until after Thanksgiving.... then how are you supposed to have the Christmas decorations turned on, on the day after Thanksgiving?

Hrmmm. Methinks you meant that either you put up your Christmas decorations on the day after Thanksgiving, or your Thanksgiving decorations on the day after Christmas.

You know what the worst thing about Xmas decorations going up early every year is? It's having to hear people like you whine about the same fucking thing every fucking year. EVERY FUCKING YEAR we have multiple threads with people whining about how early the Xmas decorations go up. Who gives a shit?

You're just mad because Christmas is in summer and Santa's reindeer would die from the heat if they came to New Zealand.

I don't care how early you put them up so long as you take it one holiday at a time.


You should n't have Labor day decorations up before the 4th of July, Thanksgiving decorations up before Halloween, and Christmas decorations up before....anything.

why would I be jealous? Christmas/New Years here means BBQs by the pool, drinking beer in the sun and not freezing my balls off.

Christmas is the gem that makes winter worthwhile. We can be happy in the summer for no reason other than the good weather.
