Yeah, I feel sorry for those guys! Cover their ears and send them over here where they will be safe until Christmas
While probably a little off track, the keenness by some to make money off holidays is a little annoying.
Living in Aus we do not have the same holidays as you.
I remember when I was only a child and I saw an advertisement on television to ‘buy mum a dishwasher for Mothers’ Day’ .. a dishwasher? I’m a kid with no job! OK, it might have been directed at Dad, but still.
We do not technically celebrate Halloween but the shopping centres make sure we know when it is … I confess to participating in that we had a carved pumpkin and gave lollies to the neighbourhood children but that was because my hubby is American.
What shocked me was that overnight the local shopping centre went from Halloween decorations to Christmas Decorations and you can guarantee that when Christmas is over, Easter Eggs and hot cross buns will be in store .. I’m thinking January!
I reckon they should just park a huge Easter Bunny in the middle of the store, dress him in a red and white suit, hang some spider webs and bats off him, Happy Mothers’ Day Card in one paw, Happy Fathers’ Day Card in the other paw and a basket of easter eggs hanging off his tail .. then he could just be there all year!
