This is something I was thinking about earlier this week; is Christmas starting too early? Now I just want to explain that I am absolutely not a Grinch or Scrooge. I LOVE Christmas and it is one of my favourite times of the year. I just feel like it is only the beginning of November yet so many people are in full blown Christmas mood.
I remember walking into B&M or somewhere like that back in September and they were already putting out the Christmas decorations. I get that shops have to bring the Christmas things out a bit early but personally I feel like it should be towards the end of October. Once Halloween is done get the Christmas stuff out.
Places such as Costa, Starbucks and McDonalds have got there Christmas cups out. The other day at work a few customers said that they couldn’t believe we were already using Christmas cups.
Joe and I always start our Christmas shopping the beginning of December, sometimes the end of November. I know to some people that would be stressful but we always get it done in time and we don’t have that many people to buy presents for.
One of my friends started her shopping in September and she is pretty much already finished. I guess it is nice to be that organised but I just could not be dealing with our spare room being full of presents for that long. Joe and I have wrote a list of ideas for people so we are starting to think about present ideas and we did buy one present last weekend. We were out with Joe’s brother and his girlfriend and his brother saw a shirt he liked. We we suggested getting it for Christmas so we bought it for him while we were in the shop. However we still will be not being actually going Christmas shopping until December.
Now, this is something I am yet to announce on here. This year I have decided to take part in Blogmas! I am very excited about this and I have already written a few posts. The idea of posting a blog post every single day is very stressful so I wanted to get as many as I could pre-written. Because of this I feel like Christmas has started a lot earlier this year.
Once again I would like to just say that I am a massive lover of Christmas and I am really excited for it this year. I just wanted to talk about my opinion really. I think I just in a bit of shock at how quick this year seems to be going.
What do you think about this? Is Christmas starting too early or do you love getting into the festive spirit as early as you can? Let me know
