Christmas in July. Really?
Christmas in July. Really? What possesses anyone but a retailer to think about Christmas, especially in the middle of a heat wave. The very last thing I want to think about is sweaters and hot chocolate.
I walked into the fabric store this week, to look for a craft item, and Christmas hit me, full on in the face. Table after table, stacked with Snowmen wearing wooly scarves, and Christmas Angels, Reindeer, and fake snow. All for 50% off! Really? You're already having sales?
What happened to having a big sale after the holiday is over. Don't get me wrong. I love a good sale! But Christmas started creeping up in front of Thanksgiving, then it creeped up past Halloween, and now, here it is, smack dab in July. Not some nutty car salesman, coming up with a wacky theme to get people's attention, but just getting a jump on your holiday shopping list.
Really? I think not.
If this keeps up, it's gonna creep up on the Easter Bunny, and before you know it, you'll end up with Two Christmas's for the Price of One! Which is really just them cheating you out of a whole Christmas.
I'm boycotting the Christmas in July sale.
I have half a mind to just hand make all my gifts this year!
Well, yeah. I guess I will have to hit the craft store for that. But not for any pre made Christmas crap!
Okay, the Snowmen were cute. But it's too hot to buy a Snowman!
