Lots of folks don't like it that businesses keep moving Christmas earlier and earlier. Like we saw Christmas decorations before Halloween! Then there are the seed catalogs. I recall when I was a schoolboy we used to sell garden seeds as a fund raiser in the FFA. That was done in the last half of January and the first half of February. Out of school and soon seed catalogs start coming in the mail. First was in February and then it moved to late January and soon to early January. Just a few years ago they started coming between Christmas and New Years. Then before Christmas. This year, they start coming before Thanksgiving! In fact, we got our first one over a week ago. Ridiculous for sure. Well, we also got a winter clearance catalog in the mail and winter does not arrive for another month yet! So, is it the "mentality" of other business that causes this? Like new cars usually get introduced in the fall. Magazines of course have to be 1-2 months ahead of time. Boys and girls get together earlier too. Shoot, many want to try out the "marriage life" before the marriage. What I think really happens is too many confuse pleasure with happiness. Okay. Rant done.
