Christmas Comes Far Too Early

I must admit I’m a wee bit Bah Humbug when it comes to Christmas.  I absolutely love the aspect of excessive eating, drinking and spending time with family and friends but the over-commercialisation of it gets on my wick.  So, when I learned that Selfridges Christmas Shop opened on the 2nd August, 145 days before the big day, I was horrified.  They claim that it’s so that tourists can buy things and ship home in time for Christmas but I think they’ve gone too far.

This is going to be the first year that Madame will really know what it is all about and I’m looking forward to being able to wield the threat of no visit from Santa if she’s naughty, but if I have to start fending her off mid-summer I’ll never last.

I don’t plan on going as far as the individuals behind the ‘Movement for the Containment of Christmas’ in Leeds and threaten to put superglue in shopkeeper’s locks if they ‘dare to slip into the Yuletide spirit too early’.  However, if I see Christmas decorations or hear any Christmas Carols before the 1st of November I’m going to seriously consider shopping elsewhere!  That should save me a fortune as I won’t have anywhere to shop!

  1. I think the blame lies squarely at the feet of Roy Wood. Wizzard sang ‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday’ and slowly but surely that wish is being granted.

  2. Lol, I spent years working in retail and we thought about Christmas all year round, it kinda loses it shine.
