Christmas time

I know it is nearly November, but it seems like people have been banging on about Xmas since, well, last Christmas. I know I always complain, but it is silly.

Here in the UK, and elsewhere I am sure, the high street shops are struggling. For many of them, their biggest time for profits is Xmas. With Brexit looming and prices increasing, they do what they can to attract trade. Pre-Xmas sales, starting April, seem one way. Whether it works or not I cannot say.

I know at least one person who puts up her decorations in mid-September. She tells me she loves Christmas and wishes it could be Xmas every day (hmm, could be a song there).

I don’t bother too much. When you take down the decorations, it all looks very bare and sad, in other words, normal.

There are local folk who decorate their houses much like the one above. Over the top?

Hmmm…

There should be rules, don’t you think?

And we haven’t even had Halloween, Brexit or bonfire night yet!
