Christmas Comes Early For Shoppers In Oxford Stree

Sun Jul 18, 2010 7:28 pm

Quote:

One of the country's top stores is to start its Christmas trading 145 days before the holiday.

Selfridges in Oxford Street will launch its Christmas season on 2 August - its earliest-ever start for the store.

People keen to plan ahead can purchase trees, crackers, fairy lights or even a £500 life-size donkey.

This is really starting to get ridiculous! Any chance of banning all mention of the aforementioned festival until December 1st?

No chance at all. The US would never allow the loss of Black Friday.

Especially if it is all Christmas music playing. Yeesh.

How can christmas be special if you start thinking about it (forced to be) 6 months before ? By the time it happens you just want to be done with it !
