'Tis The Season, I Guess
« on: September 27, 2017, 01:13:00 PM »
Yesterday, 26 September, they were putting up Christmas merchandise displays at my local Menards DIY store. It's right beside the Halloween stuff.   :DntKnw:

I think it’s forbidden here until after Halloween, which they don’t really celebrate

Way way way too early, I can remember when I was a kid my Dad brought the Christmas tree home on Christmas Eve.

Yesterday, I heard my first Christmas song in a shop for the year. Which is bad enough... ...but the song was new! What artist/promoter thought early October was a good time to release a new Christmas song?

(I don't know the artist or song title, but it was cringeworthy in a "adult woman pretending to sing like an off-key 7-year-old, and getting drowned out by over-engineered piano and synthetic cowbell" sense).

I'll put up my little tree in mid-December. My parents will likely stick to the tradition of not decorating their festive branches until Dad comes home for Christmas. This year, they'll be unusually early because they may start as early as tea-time on December 22nd!  (Last year, we started at 6:58 pm on Christmas Eve due to a broken something-or-other requiring Dad to go back to work for a couple of hours, just as we were about to do the first attempt to decorate).

Sears Canada might not exist by Christmas, if they can't sell the trees now, they'll never get to sell them

1) Wow, that surprises me - I thought they were pretty sound as a company :(

2) Is Sears USA in the same boat?

Nearly every big traditional department store is on the verge of bankruptcy, Sears, Penneys, Macy's. Welcome to the world of Amazon. Why drive all the way to the Mall when a couple of clicks brings it to your door and usually cheaper.

Sears, and its companion K-Mart, are on the ropes. They've been closing stores all over the place. Sears even sold off its famous Craftsman Tools brand. Many business analysts expect them to go completely under soon.

I never buy online, apart from the fact that I like to physically see what I'm buying I'm not happy having my bank details floating about the ether.
