Personally? I am sick and tired of having Christmas crammed down my throat for two months. To me the season no longer has any magic or wonder when you’re hammered on a daily basis ‘buy, buy, buy, buy’.
It literally gets earlier each year as merchant after merchant tries to be the first, and this year the school supply displays were replaced by Christmas trees. It’s too much.
IMHO, the retailers are going the wrong way. They’re pushing so much that they’re pushing people away. They want to kick start things, go back to the ‘Christmas season starts after thanksgiving’ and maintain some energy and excitement of keeping it a sprint rather than making it a droning and monotonous marathon.
