My rant for this week is actually about Christmas. Yeah, I know it’s not even Halloween yet, but as I walked through 3 local stores (corporate stores) the Christmas decorations were already out in full swing! Can we not get through one holiday, let alone two holidays before we break out the Christmas and Festivus decor? And yes, I understand that there are some people who like to celebrate early, but come on, October? Besides, everyone knows the best time to buy said decor is after Christmas is over anyways. Instead of paying $79.99 for a 10 ft Douglas Fir Christmas tree wait till the 27th and pay $19.99. Now if they put out the decorations with post holiday prices, well then maybe this rant wouldn’t exist, but until that day this rant just possibly may re-occur every year.
Hey wait. What is that? I think I see Easter decorations next to Valentines stuff…..
Vent away everyone, but remember the rules!!! And hey, go tell someone about monroelocal.org !!!
