Christmas getting earlier and earlier!

Posted on Updated on

I am not a Christmas ‘Scrooge’ – far from it, but I do find the fact that we seem to start with the Christmas experience earlier and earlier now just plain wrong.

20120910-204305.jpgIt is much more of a retail holiday than a religious one which I find rather sad. Consequently it is now ‘expected’ that Christmas goods appear a couple of months before the big day – but the beginning of September?

I spotted these mince pies in Morrison’s yesterday – they are already a ‘special offer’ so presumably will be even more of a deal in December!

I am sure if I raised the issue with the store they would claim that mince pies were ‘just a fruit pie’ and can be had any time of the year.

But we know differently!
