Gina Bobena...annoyed because when the items are in the stores so early... the sole purpose is $$$$$ (...which is not the true meaning of the season!) :-( Tuesday WildchildWe had christmas stuff in some shops for few weeks here in Blighty. I ignore it. Alan Termineugh too much pressure. Jeff FancherI'm sorry, what? That kids face is distracting me. Mafi Arriola GromeI don't mind. Christmas is my favorite holiday. Those decor and lights makes me feel like home. Reminds me that giving is better than receiving. Julie StilwellThe early sales ruins the holidays for me.I don't like any of them anymore, because none of it is special. It seems like decorations are out year round. John Hamilton LohnesThe rules should be: Halloween, after October 1st. Thanksgiving; after Halloween. Christmas; after Thanksgiving. Valentine's Day; never!
