Nov. 7th, 2009 06:40 pm It's NOT Christmas Time Yet.
I like Christmas. I like Christmas music. I like Christmas decorations.
But... November 7 is too early for people to have already decorated their yard, like we saw this evening. It is also too early for Santa Claus to be at a mall, but they just announced that he's already at Fashion Valley Mall (at least).
Since we won't have bad weather around here before Thanksgiving, people can wait to decorate. I understand doing some setup before the weather gets too bad up North, but that doesn't apply around here.
I'll also admit I can understand retailers trying to get the shopping season moving as early as possible. But having Santa Claus before black Friday isn't necessary for that, is it?
