    How do you feel about Christmas decorations starting to show up in stores already?

    I used to get upset, thinking it was such a greedy attempt by stores to get as much business as possible from a 'religeous holiday'.  Christmas is no longer (according to many, many people) about the birth of Christ.  It is more about presents, decorations, what to do, where to go, do I have to go home, what will I get from _____?, etc., etc.  So, because I can't fight the Xmas shopping, all the marketing activities, and Santa Claus (started by Coke, by the way), I no longer sweat it.  I just get shopping out of the way and enjoy the way I celebrate the hol(y)day.

    They've been up in stores in Oklahoma for over a month already... I guess some people just want to do it and get it out of the way so they don't have to worry about it later.

    I understand it from a marketing point - but I don't like it.
