The Season is Upon Us

I've been saving this shot because I decided not to show any Christmas related images until December. I found these silly fellows in a shop window on November 3rd.  Way too early for Christmas decor in my humble opinion.




























On November 17th, I went shopping with a friend at the Scottsdale Quarter and decorations were up in every direction and inside all the stores.  I guess when it comes to merchandising, everyone wants to be first.

Oh we might as well not fight it Sharon, the decs are up everywhere 😉 The two here are rather cute though and the Christmas wreath very tasteful 🎄

Yes merchandise rules the world.

Just like they sing in the the song "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas".

The colors are out!

I like to wait until December too but we had some stores with things out before Halloween! All I have out so far is the Advent calendar.

The stores are decorated here too. I've been photographing for Christmas for the blog, but as to the actual holiday itself, let's just say that the sooner it's done, the better.

Same thing here, since around Halloween, Christmas items and decorations are getting more exposure earlier each year it seems.

November 3rd is a tad early, same here though, and soon the Easter eggs appear! Last year I discovered Easter eggs in the shops in January.

We had Christmas decorations out in the shops just after Halloween - way too early for my liking but the 2 in the top photo will brighten up anyone's home.

Some people/stores start too early.

Bah, humbug!

I've seen Christmas decorations sharing space with Halloween.

Nov. 3 is definitely WAY too early. Any time before Thanksgiving is too early, in my estimation.
