    Noe, just nice to cheer up the winter season, bring happiness to all people of every races all over the world. Window shopping should start now, more time to think which gifts are the best for your friends and love ones

    Yes and NO.
    I really believe it does from a consumer perspective. Christmas has become so commercialized that by the time it does come around it has already lost some flavor.

    On the other hand if you are a business owner then definitely NOT because you do need to put the different events out there for marketing and Christmas is no different. Business owners rely on presales before the actual day, which then see them lowering their merchandise to attract late shoppers.

    My family watched some Christmas programs on the Hallmark chanel this weekend.  In the lower left hand corner was a count-down to Thanksgiving.  The theme for the programs was "Countdown to Christmas."  Not a bad theme, but I remember that when I was a child we didn't start planning for Christmas until after Thanksgiving day.

    Commercially?? Christmas is not meant to be some celebration of out-buying the next guy to look good. If anything it is to give from your heart to show your love and appreciation.

    Spiritually, Religiously Christmas is meant as a day of remembrance to remember and celebrate the fact that God chose to become a fleshly being and dwell amongst man to teach man and eventually offer Himself as a perfect Godly sacrifice for the sins of man.

    Does Christmas start to early? Commercially definitely YES!
    Spiritually it should be each day every day of the year.

    Christmas doesn't start too soon for me although, I do understand the comments about the commercialization of the holiday. But for me it's exciting to see all the cheesy decorations and families sorting through them because it reminds me that in a few weeks I will get visit them and that time wil go by quickly, filled with thoughts of them.

    As a hubpage writer of sales hubs, I think Christmas can never start too early!

    Perhaps the selling of Christmas seems to start too early, but the spirit of Christmas should be year-round: good will toward others, time with family & friends, sharing and caring, enjoying music and lights and festivities and the birth of another new season.

    This year stores in my area had Halloween decorations on one aisle, and Christmas decorations on another. That is entirely too early! While I understand that merchants and the economy need to have a great holiday selling season, it just smacks of greed to me. If this keeps up, we'll be seeing suntan lotion, swimsuits and Christmas trees advertised for 4th of July.
