Why do people cry ‘it’s too early’ when Christmas is mentioned in September? You can already find Christmas cards and gifts on sale in the shops and many people getting up in arms about it. Maybe they are Christmas haters? Maybe they think we spend too long planning for Christmas. Maybe they don’t want to think about it until last minute.
Personally, I think the run up to Christmas is the best part. I enjoy planning and deciding what to buy. I don’t have a huge amount of presents to buy but I like to give them lots of thought. Then there is the money side, Christmas might seem like a long way away but it’s only three or four pay days depending on which time of the month you are paid! I don’t like leaving everything to the last minute. I like to start early and not have to worry about paying out a huge amount in one go.
This photo was taken in August in Stratford-on-Avon. The Nutcracker Shop is open all year selling Christmas things. If I lived nearer I would visit frequently, why not?
What do you think, does Christmas start arriving earlier every year? Do you prefer to think of it at the last minute? Should Christmas be left well alone until December?
or, do you ‘Wish it Could Be Christmas Everyday?’
I’ve made the photo a little more Christmassy, now does it look better than the one taken in August?
