I think this must be a record

Surely this is slightly ridiculous... I've just seen the first "back to school - buy new uniform" advert on TV. This is far, far worse than Easter eggs on Boxing Day.

But not worse than Valentine's Day cards in the shops at New Year,just when you've spent so much time with your partner arguing over in-laws, turkey leftovers and unromantic presents that you're considering homocide. (This is what my friends tell me, anyway.)

The Christmas season starts as soon as the kids are back at school, if some of the larger stores are to be believed.

When you see trees going up and hear "Fairy Tale of New York" in early SEPTEMBER, you know they've gone TOO far...

Fran is probably right...as soon as one holiday is over, the stores are scheduling the next one. School just let out for the summer here. I wouldn't be surprised at all if I saw commercials soon about back-to-school shopping!
