View Full Version : The world has gone mad!!!
Look at this article.
I am speechless!!!!! I don't think about christmas until December 1st (though may have to make a small adjustment to that this year!!!:lol: ) Even so, August is just madness!!!
Yeah, but they're appealing to the summer tourists who want to take a bit of Harrods back home. I can see their logic actually, especially as they say they are responding to demand.
Selfridges also feel the same thing, as they are opening their Christmas dept in two weeks.
S'pose but really when do you go on holiday and think 'ooh I'll just pick up a christmas bauble whilst I'm here'?????? Maybe it's just the tourists who come here - I'd never do that abroad personally!!
There is no way they'd be doing it unless there was money in it for them!
And no, I don't generally do my Christmas shopping on my summer holiday :loco:
I can't bear heraring Christmas music in shops ages before the day. Makes me feel quite irate. :angry:
I'm with you August Girl - by the time Christmas eventually comes along we've heard Silent Night so many times I just want to say "Bah Humbug" to the whole thing.
when i worked in Argos one christmas i was ready to pull my ears off by november.
oddly, I like christmas shops that stay open all year round but to have christmas displays in regualr shops in the summer does seem a little :loco: - i'm still in my sundresses!
I shall be starting my Xmas shopping early this year, i left it really late last year and ended up spending WAY too much because i didn't give myself time to look round for bargains.
I think i'll start when i return from my holiday, begining of September.
When i was pg with Lu, i managed to get all my stuff bought and wrapped before i was due which was 29 Nov :ellie:
