Thursday Challenge—"paper" # 2

I took this picture yesterday.  Is it me,
or does this stuff show up
earlier and earlier every year?

  1. Considering the normal shipping method for this (lower right) I’m surprised it arrived at all.

    I’m convinced that you are right about the Christmas season arriving earlier and earlier. Sadly, I’m waiting for the upcoming Santa Claus Easter Egg Hunts.

  2. It's not just you and it's not just there anymore. In recent years, holiday (Christmas here falls on Jan. 6, and it is low-hype. New Year's is BIG) decorations and all that go with them comes end of October....lights are up and even lit already...

  3. I think it all has to do with the state of our economy. Poor sales says " let's start selling a little earlier and maybe we can still at least break even after the holidays are over."

  4. Agreed! There was a time when I would have most of my gift shopping done early cause I had to mail packages home. Not any more even though Christmas deco is out by almost Labor Day
