Christmas Comes Early

It's always shocking to go into the shops and see the Christmas displays. It always seems that it comes earlier and earlier. Back in October they started putting the Christmas displays in the stores and they've already started doing the Christmas lighting ceremonies on the various streets of London. I guess I'm just used to waiting until after Thanksgiving to start seeing all the lights on and the massive Christmas advertisements but here there is no Thanksgiving to mark when the start of the Christmas season actually is.

Thanksgiving is no longer the start of the Christmas season. With the economy in the tank, Christmas started right around Halloween.

It seems that most stores are not stocking a lot of gifts because of the economy.
