Does the Christmas season seem to start earlier and earlier every year?

    It certainly seems that way to me. I was actually just thinking about that the other day. Unfortunately it doesn't motivate me to begin my shopping earlier, I still haven't finished!

    Not in our house... two weeks before and 12 days after... Saying that, the build up can be more exciting than the actual day...

    It certainly does, there may be some truth in the saying 'I wish it could be Christmas every day', as it's heading that way :-)

    My christmas starts when the November quite period ends at work, this year, Christmas literally only started last Friday.

    It's worst year on record in these terms, I don't mind very much, I hate the Christmas overcrowding anyway!

    It's no surprise either considering in Ireland we're considerably more in debt than we previously realised!

    Merry Xmas indeed smile

    Yes, indeed. It seems so. Not enough that the time seems to pass faster and faster. Summer is not over officially, it is already Christmas stuff in stores.

    And when Christmas is finally here, we have had enough already.

    I think all holidays do. Christmas things in September, Easter eggs in January.

    It seems like it. All the stores trying to get customers to shop early for gifts. I still wait until the week before Christmas to get my shopping done. The Valentine stuff should be out any minute now!

    Yes, indeed it is. Christmas is now about getting gifts and getting ready for parties...less meaning to the real Christmas.
