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).
