Bah Humbug!

Dear Perimeter Mall and Mall of Georgia,

The first couple of weeks of November is the wrong time to have Christmas decorations up! Have you no shame?

Hell, MoG had Santa visits for kids on November 6th, NOVEMBER 6TH!!! And now I had to crack my iPod up to 11 today to drown out the Christmas music being pumped into peoples heads in Perimeter Mall…

It’s just not right I tell’s you…

Wake me up in January, preferably when the sales begin

    You know, I bet someone could really cash in on the fact that the Christmas-before-Thanksgiving thing is annoying the heck outta so many people these days. I know if a retailer told me that they wouldn’t have any signs of Christmas in their stores until right after Thanksgiving (and they kept their word), I would give them my business just for that alone. I wouldn’t care what they sold…it could be a paperclip store for all I care. I would gladly go and buy paperclips to show my support.

    I know it’s unrealistic, but a girl can dream, right?

    I have a feeling if stores would wait until, say, one week after Thanksgiving to even mention Christmas, they might have better sales. Christmas is such a long, dragged out one day event now, people may be taking it for granted. I never, ever shop for Christmas until about 1 week before. It’s just more fun to me.

    I for one welcome the Xmas celebrating earlier. No one decorates for Tgiving and no one sings Tgiving songs. Let’s start the Xmas machine up on Nov. 1 every year. I love the gaudy lights and seeing all the Santa stuff everywhere. It is one of the only times when acting like a kid is acceptable. Plus Xmas memories make me feel all warm and fuzzy. Having a kid and a wife that dig Xmas helps too.

    We were going to walgreens two weeks ago and my kid got out of the car and stopped cold. She said, “MOM! Did we miss thanksgiving?!”

    all we saw from the parkinglot inward was christmas christmas christmas

    The reason no one decorates for Thanksgiving is BECAUSE of the retail Christmas rush. Furthermore, at this point they hardly even do Halloween. My mom puts up Thanksgiving decorations every year, and it’s so festive – it’s a reminder of the beauty of fall and the gracious spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday.
