I was amazed yesterday and today whilst in a Card shop to hear Xmas carols being played , it is now the 16th November , with at least 5 weeks to go , anyone else think its far too early , i admit i am grumpy old man nowadays but the same songs every year gets on my nerves , a few years ago they banned radios at work , xmas is the only time i'm glad they did .

I am all for cancelling Christmas.

I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

I have seen my first set of Christmas lights :? Those manic flashing ones that give you a nervous breakdown - in every window of the house. Thankfully not visible from my house. :roll:

Me too; We used to take our summer holidays late in September a few years ago, and was sickened by the amount of Christmas stuff in the shops when we arrived home.

No need for any of it until the first week in December IMHO.

Cheers, Steve.

Xmas should be confined to December.

When I worked for a nameless large hotel chain we had to promote Christmas 'activities' from when the brochure came out in about August, inciting rioting and near violence from elderly customers.

I've decided to play them at their own game. For the past week whenever I go to the check out in Tesco I've been wishing the staff a Merry Christmas as I leave. To be honest only one person has bit and said "a bit early isn't it?" - to which I took great pleasure in replying "well, you started it!". 8)
