I was somewhat taken aback on the way home today when I popped into my local grocery store and waiting at the checkout were a load of chocolate santas. This is just way too early for these to be on sale. There’s still nearly 4 months to go! I understand that Christmas has, for many, become a commerical opportunity and nothing more. Obviously I feel that is somewhat sad and that people are missing out on what Christmas really does offer them, but I also have to accept that for many, that is what they want. However I can’t believe anyone wants it this early.
