Okay, I love Christmas as much as the next person (okay, considerably more than most people) however. I do feel it's a wee bit wrong for the shops to be setting up for it NOW.
We spotted a Coles last week that has some items for sale, the local Myer is setting up their Christmas land and some two dollar shiops have their christmas produce available.
Do these people not understand it's only SEPTEMBER (I've very shouty in this post)
It just makes it all a bit tacky and nasty. Their ruining Christmas!!! Next they'll start telling us that the Tooth fairy doesn't exist.
MrNw is right, Australians really do need another thing between fathers day and Christmas. I guess that's why Americans have Turkey Day, it gives the shops something to focus on.
