There Should Be Rules On Putting Christmas Decorations Out Too Early.
OK, Start Rant!
It’s only mid-September, and already Christmas decorations are popping up in stores. It’s too early! Christmas is still over three months away, and we shouldn’t have to be bombarded with Christmas stuff this early. Stores are just trying to get people to spend more money.
Decorations for Christmas should not be put out until at least November, this is when people are actually starting to think about Christmas and getting into the Christmas spirit. Putting the decorations out any earlier is just a waste and is shallow of the stores.
It’s bad enough that stores start putting out Christmas decorations earlier and earlier every year. But now they’re starting to put them out even before Halloween! This is just too much. Halloween is a great holiday in its own right, and it deserves its own time to shine. What’s next, Christmas decorations in July?
This is just getting ridiculous. Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy and happiness, not a time to be stressed out by all the Christmas shopping. So let’s all just take a deep breath, and enjoy the Halloween season before Christmas takes over.
So please, stores, can we wait until at least November to start putting up the Christmas decorations? Let’s enjoy Halloween first, and then we can start thinking about Christmas.
Heck! It isn’t even Thanksgiving here in Canada yet! That’s not even until October 10th this year, but for some reason, they’ve already set out those fregging Christmas isles in the stores.
Seriously though folks, I was really put off when I walked through the Canadian Tire today and saw them setting up the isles for Christmas already. Thanksgiving here in Canada, Halloween, and let’s not forget Remembrance Day on November 11th hasn’t even gotten close yet. The greed of these places is really sickening.
Kids will be trick-or-treating knocking on doors with Christmas wreaths on them instead of a spooky ghost. Instead of a Thanksgiving Turkey, it’ll be a Christmas Turkey. And instead of laying Poppy Wreaths at the cenotaphs on Remembrance Day, they’ll be Christmas wreaths. Sounds stupid right?
People should be letting these stores know how morraly wrong it is to be putting this garbage out so early when there are other special events and holidays before x-mas. Especially for Remembrance Day when people are paying respect to those who fought and died for our freedoms. Kinda shady doing that while staring at a Christmas Decoration smiling at you.
Yes, this is a rant. I get people like Christmas, but there needs to be a time frame set though. Right?
