Did I Sleep Through Thanksgiving?

The hubby and I were at Walmart the other day picking up a couple of items. We had been there a little while, when I noticed that the store was playing Christmas music. At first I though I was hearing things, but I listened again and it was true. I couldn't believe it! 2 days after Halloween and the store was already playing Christmas music.

I know that several stores like CVS and Target already brought in some Christmas merchandise awhile ago. But there is a huge difference between some wrapping paper tucked away in the back aisle and playing Christmas music for everyone to hear. I took a look around Walmart and they have already put up their Christmas signage, as well.

The Consumerist reported the other day that due to the economy, retail stores are fearing a poor Christmas season. Thus, they are planning on offering large discounts now, compared to previous years of slashing prices the day after Thanksgiving. Too bad we are saving for house and will not be able to take advantage of some of the good deals!

Overall, I am really looking forward to the holiday season. The holidays always mean lots of really good food and socializing. I do wish though the stores would wait a little while, to bring in all of the Christmas items. I feel like it is only now starting to feel like fall and Thanksgiving. I don't want to skip those and go straight to Christmas!

Isn't it coast that plays Christmas music 24/7 starting the day of Thanksgiving? Way too early imo!
