Well went to Walmart this evening. DH had to purchase a battery for his car. So I thought I'd go with him. Went into the store while he was purchasing his battery. Basically just browsing and doing what the good doc. suggested-- walking.
Well to get to the point -- what did I hear over the inter com was Christmas music. Yes Christmas music on 11/04/08 (And Thanksgiving isn't even here yet).. Don't get me wrong here --I love Christmas music. And I love the holiday season. But in all my time that I spent in retail (over 21 years). I never heard the music, in the store till the day after Thanksgiving. Talk about speeding things up.. I don't believe, I'll have to go back to Walmart until after Thanksgiving now...I guess for some it's ok for the music to start now. But I realize now that I have another tradition ---no music till the day after Thanksgiving please..... To me Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the Holiday Season--that continues thur Christmas and New Years Day.
