Well, whatever years stock it was it's still only the middle of September.
I think a lot of retailers are expecting the worst this Christmas.

I just know that by the time it rolls around I shall be well and truly over Christmas.

I'm not a Xmas person. I'd be happy if they cancelled it and New Year's Eve. And Easter. I'll settle for long weekends, though every week is a very long weekend these days.

Yes, certainly early but then again, we don't have any more other days left to celebrate between now and late December.

Mind you, we should consider to celebrate SILVER PEERS DAY on the 25th September each year!

Spread the word!

Big W has stopped selling Christmas trees:
"The traditional style of tree is now called a “Grand Pine Tree” and the snow-covered version has been labelled the “White Forest Tree” despite being surrounded by seasonal decorations."

So, what do the "big ones" have on offer for Labor Day?

Bill Shorten figurines or Turnbull hanging from the gallows?

Or maybe "Barnaby Joyce garden gnomes"?

Seems like no-one's told our local BigW that Xmas trees shouldn't be labelled "Christmas".
