Jason isn't sure he likes this crossover

It’s normal to want to get a jump on the holidays, but at what point does it become too much?

Every year it seems Christmas is being rolled out earlier and earlier. It was September 25th when I took the photo above. Even Jason looks a bit dumbfounded by it all.

Almost every retail shop I have visited has Halloween on one aisle and Christmas on the next. With maybe an endcap or shelf of Thanksgiving/fall decorations. It seems like the holidays are becoming just one big blob.

Every kid with wide eyes on December 25th wishes that Christmas would come every day. That may soon be the case in retail. To squeeze every last dollar out of the biggest spending season shops may decide to make a permanent display of Santas, snowmen and decorated trees.

I just find it all very unsettling that we are forgetting what all of these holidays really stand for. A great holiday that could bring families together for a night of fun is being swallowed by retail greed.

I want my pumpkin shaped Reese’s to come from an aisle filled with rubber masks and bottles of fake blood. Not sitting next to Rudolph and his eight tiny pals.

I think Jason agrees, don’t you Jason. Jason? *gulp…. Hope to see you next post.
