The marketing definitely gets earlier with every year. Last night there was wall to wall Xmas TV ads. Grocers had a stack of Xmas goodies by early September, garden centres/DIY chains displayed their Xmas stock in early October.

We love it, in part because people get hot under the collar about it :lolol: .

In fairness, if they had been playing "I wish it could be Christmas everyday" then fair enough, play it any day you like. For everything else, leave it at least until December starts.

And retailers getting in early with their 'Black Friday' offers so that they do not miss out on any stamped, on the 'official' day (is there one??)

Halloween seems to be the official starting pistol for Xmas now.

I think it’s one thing selling Xmas stuff early, but signs in shops wishing you a Merry Christmas in November really do my head in.

The Asda ad even outright claims it’s Christmas on 1st November, which is just wrong

It did snow in Chicago on November 1st. We've had our pre-Thanksgiving snow. Now about 2 times before Crimbo & I'll be all set.

Just be grateful you get different Christmas music. ALL I will hear, day in, day out over the next 2 months is Mariah Frickkin’ Carey.
Over and over and over again.

I love Xmas, but loath that song.
I agree.
It will be played to death here. I was at a party a couple of years ago and a fellow Brit played Slade, Merry Christmas Everybody. There were 4 of us singing & dancing with a group of Aussies watching on.
They had never heard it……🤯🎅🏼🎄
