Holiday Decorations up Early in Stores: Annoying or Festive?

Holiday Decorations up Early in Stores: Annoying or Festive?

Drakoni Drakoni
So, what does everyone think of all the X-mas stuff that has been up in the stores for over a month now? Does it start the festive season early? Or, does it take away from the other holidays?

It makes the holidays seem very rushed and too soon. Just me, but hold off a bit and I would be a lot happier.

Both my boyfriend and I hate the holiday music and decor they add to stores around this time. He works in retail, so I really feel bad for him, I can at least turn off my hearing aids to block out the annoying music.

Same here. We both dread this time of year. People get so grouchy, they drive more aggressively... we are major grinches though.

I see the Christmas/Holiday stuff and I get excited but then I also panic about how close Christmas is coming. Makes me kinda nuts.

Also the time in which people become really hateful and mean, but that could just be in my town. lol.

I feel the same way. I prefer thinking about one holiday/season at a time: Back-to-School, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, then X-mas.

I wasn't very happy when there was Christmas stuff up and Halloween hadn't even happened yet. Starting on Nov. 1st though I start my Christmas shopping. I've always bought some wrapping paper. I like to plan ahead.

I put zombie masks on all the life-size Christmas figures a couple of weeks ago ... zombie elves, zombie nutcrackers, zombie Santas ... it was kinda awesome to be able to mix up the holidays like that and scare people.

Still didn't make them put it back in the stockroom.

Now, I can see that! Zombie elves would be great to see in stores. I just get annoyed when the stores are taken over by x-mas decor to the point that you can't find the Halloween or Thanksgiving stuff and Halloween is still a month away.

I can't deny my love for Christmas-themed decor and music.

Halloween officially marks the beginning of the holiday season, but it kind of irks me that stores want to get all of that merchandise out well before Thanksgiving. It does up their numbers for "holiday sales" and if this economy keeps up, we'll start seeing that crap in August.

I dislike christmas and the holiday season as is, so it being shoved in my face earlier and earlier makes me not so happy

It really bugs me how a pure holiday like Thanksgiving is being totally run over by the commercialism of xmas. I have really fond memories of Thanksgiving. I can easily do without xmas.

The firm boundary for every holiday should be the previous major holiday. No Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving, no Thanksgiving stuff before Halloween, etc.

It's not my favorite thing ever, but it doesn't really bother me all that much either.

I think Christmas decoration right after Halloween is just too soon. I enjoy Christmas, so I don't want to get tired of it because I've been seeing it around everywhere.

I so much agree with this as well. I don't like seeing Christmas stuff out in September...

This is true, for the most part Thanksgiving get railroaded. Although I see how Santa has more jolly appeal then a piligrim, especially given how the story ends. Nonetheless I don't understand why hurry to x-mas so ahead of schedule. Although I will admit I'm already humming christmas songs.

I don't mind. But I do hope that the early decorations won't be a jinx for early bad weather.
