I saw a Spirit Halloween store sign pop up in early August. So I’m not surprised we’re not even half way through September yet and we have our first Christmas commercial! Kmart is running one for their layaway program. And, because it’s what we do anymore, their social media pages were hammered by people complaining saying it’s too early…but is it? 12% of people supposedly start their holiday shopping before September, and 20% get going in October. That’s something to be admired. I sit up by the warm glow of my computer screen on December 23 looking for who’s making next day deliveries on Christmas Eve.
