It's official...Christmas is around the corner
 
Christmas cards and Christmas decorations are on sale in Costco.

Where and what Christmas goodies have you seen?

I can't wait for winter. I hate this constant high 80's, low 90s heat!

Always been a lover of the cold! It's better for me as I can wrap up as warm as needs be, and I like the darker nights, etc! In the heat, I just constantly sweat!

They had the Christmas trees etc all set up in Kohl's when I was in there last week. Good thing I like Christmas, I suppose :lol:

Snow can go stuff itself up it's own arse, but I love autumn and this week is completely ruined with every day forecasted to be in the 80s. Meh.

Christmas? Worse than that, supermarkets here are already gearing up for Pancake Tuesday / Mardi Gras! :thumbdown:
Got all their flour, sugar and eggs well stocked. :sneaky:

Yup, started seeing a few Xmas items at Sainsbury's this week. It's not until the big Xmas biscuit and chocolate tins appear, that I get the real shock, usually late September.

I've seen cards, wreaths and pudding out in the last couple of weeks.

There's a tree farm that has been taking bookings for Christmas photo's since the beginning of the month and most weekend slots between now and October have been booked as it's the best time for nice foliage pics.

Christmas cake, stollen, rum and eggnog, I can take it. There are always some early stores but I think Nov 20 is early enough to put the eggnog on the shelves. Feel free to imagine a fat, boozed-up Jesus eating a big bowl of stuffing and gravy.

Careful with the stollen, you'll get Nutek all excited again.
