I have two main problems with Christmas Creep
- It's annoying. I want to live my life seasonally and late September/early October is not Christmas time. Christmas creep does not make me feel festive, it makes me feel angry. I don't want to buy wrapping paper or wreathes or cards for fake trees. I'd like to enjoy October, have my Brach's Autumn Mix, move on to turkey and pumpkin pie and then focus on Christmas
- It's wasteful. Just think of all of those catalogs going straight into the recycling bin.
Retailers haven’t reported any big jumps in sales or profits pegged to an extended Christmas shopping season.So pretty much, they are lengthening the holiday shopping season and annoying me and generating a whole lot of waste for little or no benefit to their bottom line.
