As we all know, Christmas is approaching and y'all are having a good time spending money on your family. I do have one problem with this, and it is all about timing. Retail stores are already selling Christmas related items and it's just after Halloween. I mean, come on man; Isn't this a bit early?! The very first day we had snow the local Menards was frickin stocked to the brim with Christmas crap for sale, and it was just 3 weeks before Halloween for Pete sake. I do believe there should be a law that states this: "The sale of holiday related items shall be prohibited up to 2 days after the immediately preceding holiday. Failure to comply with this law will result in a fine of X <insert currency>." I love Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Easter, and that German holiday that involves lots of alcohol (I can't seem to think of its name right now); but retail stores have taken those holidays (Christmas especially), and have made it into nothing more than a contest of who can sell the most holiday related items the fastest just because they set it out first.
