It seems like you move the holiday shopping schedule up every single year. I can understand your desire to have decorations out before Thanksgiving, but I don't know if you need them up before Halloween. I always assumed that post-Halloween, pre-Thanksgiving was the Christmas decoration arrival time. So what gives? Why is it so early this year? I visited one of your stores a few weeks ago, and you had them up before the first day of fall! I mean, that is still summer. Christmas decorations and things shaped like snowmen should not be out before summer's end. What is wrong with you?
Oh. What's that you say? You only put them out now because you're afraid that our economy is tanking and that come Christmas time folks won't have any money to waste on silly plastic reindeer and cheaply made lead painted ornaments. Hrmmm, makes sense, but surely you could have waited a week or two. Should our horribly failing economy really affect our youth? Don't you think that in these times especially, they deserve to have as much childhood freedom? Why would you rob them of their summer?
Oh. I just read the news, maybe you were on to something. I guess forgive me for complaining. You're probably right. Come Christmas none of us will be able to justify inflatable Frosty and friends. My mistake.
