Look at the front page of Wilko.
So youre going to assume I'm not too lazy to go look without a link?
the Halloween specials on the ITV soaps were on last week - I was like???
We'll have Easter eggs before Christmas too...
Got Halloween themed normal food and Christmas. What’s Christmasy about corn flakes ffs?
Shops should be banned from advertising Christmas stuff until at least November.
Could be renamed snow flakes for the season....
Edit: lol at the filter.
Tescos were selling christmas selection boxes on 1st Sept
Xmas adverts have already started once november hits it'll be none stop shoved in your face.
I'll admit to buying a couple of boxes of 'Festive Friends'...they're just animal biscuits but with snowmen etc ...putting things on the shelfs between the aisles works!
It’s the Christmas music that gets me. No other time of year do so few songs gets played to death. Even the tv stations I have in the background - Now 70s and 80s get dropped for Now Xmas.
Then have the ‘joys’ of having 7-8 hours of this crap. No customers want it, colleagues hate it. We are stressed out as it is without the slitting wrists song Lonely This Christmas by Mud
Apparently it’s being done to cover up empty shelves due to shortages
I can't get worked up seeing Halloween decor in October itself. E.g. I went to Disneyland Paris in October 2018 and their Halloween decor was up, spooky music etc.
Halloween-specific pranks such as trick-or-treating though should only be held on the night itself, 31st October. The chainsaw-wielding clowns prank that went on for weeks before the 31st a few years ago crossed the line imo.
"Now here it is, merry christmas everybodys having fun!" Slade. Every year since 1973 or whenever it was. God I hate that song! Actually I don't but I do get sick of death of hearing it every bloody year.
Yes I am the grinch lol.
I actually have Now Christmas saved as a pre-set on my car radio from last year...
What was the excuse when they did it every other year then?
I like it, I like (nearly) all Christmas songs really, I guess if I worked in retail and heard them 8 hours a day from October to Christmas I would change my mind!
It’s only December. The toy shop The Entertainer starts playing them now! As went to one around this time of year three years ago and walked out when I heard Noddy belting out ‘IT’S CHRISTMAS!’. Yet the CEO is a strict Christian- so his shops close on Sunday. Makes no logical sense to me.
