Nothing destroys my sense of accomplishment from doing my Christmas shopping early than walking into the mall a few days after Halloween and seeing Christmas decorations. No one should be decorating for Christmas yet except for companies that actually sell Christmas necessities (i.e. Hallmark gets a pass because wrapping paper has to be bought somewhere). I know they're just trying to ramp up Christmas shopping early to help with Christmas sales, but I think everyone is going to be so tired of Christmas music and decorations and Santa and elves that they're not going to do much shopping at all the last few weeks of the holiday season, and they sure won't be feeling festive come December 24.
