On the 107th day before Christmas...

...the Costco store gave to me: Christmas stuff out already! Please, folks...PLEASE!!! It's not even officially autumn yet! It's the second week in September! There are OVER 3 MONTHS until Christmas!! I can stand Christmas things beginning to make an appearance in, say, November, but honestly...September? C'mon. This is a little early even for Halloween stuff to be out, let alone Christmas stuff. Sheesh. Get a little common sense and let us poor folks enjoy the time of year we are actually at, instead of making us live in constant anticipation of what's not yet here.

Oh, and by the way, when Christmas-time does roll around, let's all agree to call it what it is: CHRISTMAS. We all know that if it weren't for the Christian holiday of Christmas, we would not be throwing this big celebration. Not for Hannukah or Kwanzaa or anything else would all the stores have so much advertising and promotion so far ahead of the fact. So stop being two-faced and taking advantage of Christmas for your own commercial gain, while at the same time refusing to even call it what it is.
