So it is October, has anyone started their Christmas preparations yet?

In the UK we have Christmas stuff out in supermarkets already.

Very true; its something to look forward to.

I wish it wasn't advertised 3 months prior in the UK, however I love Christmas too. :love:

It's why I despise Christmas...the commercialism of God's gift to us - Jesus. Read my study's part about Hanukkah. I found it so amazing I had to add it to my study :D

The local Giant (grocery store) is currently stocked for Halloween. Though I would bet that Christmas stuff is starting to show up at the mall
(I go there so rarely that I really have no idea what's there or not).

Home Depot where I used to work has their Christmas stuff in the stores now, but usually don't set them up until after Halloween.

The little convenient store I frequent has an isle of Halloween stuff, but they've also shelved the Christmas stuff too. I'm used to cold weather and snow on Christmas and now that I'm in Los Angeles, Christmas won't feel the same without the chilly temps.

Our stores have halloween stuff then they will move into the thanksgiving stuff then Christmas. I lived most of my life without snow, and it never really seemed like Christmas to me. I used to bug my parents when i would sing i'm dreaming of a white Christmas...they would just say be quiet :)..... so now that i have it....i don't want to leave it, unless thst is really God's desire.
