This was mentioned in another thread, but it's something that got my goat so I had to give it its own thread rather than crap on a love-of-fall thread. My local K-Mart has had, since they cleaned out the "Back to School" supplies, had mechanical Santa Claus and a host of Christmas decorations out for public view. I love Christmas time, I really do, but do we seriously need it to start in September? Let's get through Halloween, at VERY least before we start selling the next season. It honestly disgusted me. I love Fall and Halloween, not to mention the gorging of Thanksgiving, and think it's horrible that they've not been given their due. Whatever happened to making the most of the time that's in front of us?? Anyone else think this trend has got to stop, or am I a man alone?
