I went to a dollar store in late September and to my surprise, they were already selling Christmas decorations. They had Halloween stuff (which would make sense) right next to the Christmas decorations (not so much sense). You could literally see a candy cane right next to stuffed black-raven. I thought it was pretty funny considering that they didn’t seem to have anything for Thanksgiving. It’s like they skipped Thanksgiving altogether. But then Thanksgiving isn’t as commercialized as either Christmas or Halloween… In another store, they weren’t just selling Christmas decorations way before I’m used to seeing, but also playing Christmas songs. In October. Before the huge Thanksgiving parades. So I listened to Jingle Bells while shopping for Halloween candy. I feel like they start selling decorations earlier and earlier every year. Last year, I remember that stores at least started selling stuff for the winter holidays after Halloween. Clearly something is up this year. Maybe it’s the economy. Sellers figure that people might not buy as much for the holiday season this year. Or maybe people want holiday cheeriness sooner? I don’t know. – Allyson
