I understand why publishing houses are advertising for seasonal anthologies at the moment, can even get why people are booking their holidays for the Christmas period. But isn't it a bit early to start planning Christmas nights out, buying presents and selling Christmas cards? A girl at my work decided on Friday that now was the time to book somewhere for December. My mouth dropped open in shock.
A little store near me, which usually opens in October and sells Christmas nick naks and gifts has already opened its doors. Who wants to buy a tree, cards, presents or decorations before the summer? Maybe I'm just a last minute kind of gal, but come on. It's MAY. Really?
What about you? Do you plan Christmas before the summer or worry about it nearer the time?
