This seemed out of place
My husband and I just got back from a trip to Lowe's (needed stuff to drain some water out of the pool) and they are starting to put out their Christmas trees and decorations! Sure enough, when we went to Wal Mart next (another night mare of a trip) there was the Grinch and dancing Santa! Yikes........the last thing we need to be thinking about as we wait for Frances to make up her mind and show up somewhere.

I may be dating myself but I remember when the Christmas stuff didn't come out until after Thanksgiving! Now it seems as if the stores are trying to rush us through each season and the holidays. Ever try to buy a bathing suit in the Northeast in July? or a winter jacket in February? Now the bathing suits are out in February and the winter jackets in July!

Costco in Vancouver have had Christmas stuff in since the end of July, Personally, I don't know why they even pack it away, they may as well leave it out all year round!!!

July 1st, Canada Day here, and the official start of Summer, I saw Halloween decorations out in the Dollar Store. The retail business is ridiculous!

WHOA!! Can't be Christmas yet, I still have to go on the Cruisemates Thanksgiving cruise on Victory.

I too can remember when you didn't see or hear about Christmas till after the Macy's day parade. Guess that makes me old too. Wait a minute, I was old before that realization. :-)
