General rant here, but it just pisses me right off that I heard Christmas music before Hallowe'en, and as of Nov 1st its practically everywhere.
I love Christmas, but to me it's a 2 week thing, not a 2 month thing.
I'm officially boycotting any stores or companies who blatantly over-commercialize Christmas. I'm just one person, but that's what I'm choosing to do. I walked out of Future Shop on November 1st 'cause I couldn't stand the cheese-ball Christmas music being rocked out in the store.
I get that it's a big time of year for retailers. I get it. Just don't expect me to buy-in before December. If someone else gets whatever sale is being offered, and stuff is sold out by the time I get there, then I guess someone else needed it more than I did.
One of these years, Christmas will come so early we'll be hearing next years Christmas music on Boxing Day.
