There's no profit in that.

Hobby Lobby and Walmart have their Christmas sections out & in full-boogie in AUGUST !

Yes. I walked into a Home Depot before Halloween and they had Christmas lights and trees on display. Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, but that is WAY too early. IMO the holiday isn't even close until December starts.

Anytime after they pack up or sell off the Halloween junk is fine by me. Not that I like the Xmas shopping season and all that comes with it, but let's face it ... BITOGers are not the target audience. A woman with a family to take care of and maybe a job, seven weeks isn't too much time to get it all done, and they make 70% of retail purchases. So I shut my mouth and put up with it.

If it were just us men, they could start three days before Christmas and get 90% of us to bite. But that's not how the world works.

What I like are the e-mails I'm getting from retailers announcing that their Black Friday ads were "just leaked"... crackmeup

The Christmas stuff that is out now is usually at reduced prices. Once Black Friday starts those prices go up. Some WalMart knowledge I picked up recently.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Christmas shopping means nothing to me.

Presents for little kids, Yes
Presents for adults, No

Way too early. A lot of folks here are upset because in recent years they have been starting before Veterans Remembrance Day which is Nov 11th.

YES!

However it's my understanding that some retailers depend on Christmas for 50% of their annual profits....so that's the why.

Christmas anything and everything starts too early for me, but I'm old and have a lot of "senior" moments ,so it doesn't matter what I think. In the past, Thanksgiving usually started the holiday season. ???

I saw my first ad before Halloween. They were subtle about it. It was for the projector lights for your house. They said it could be used for all holidays, including Halloween, Easter, Valentine's Day. But the Christmas music in the background told me it's a Christmas commercial.

Unless kids are involved, my friends don't stress over the gift part of Christmas.
