Well it ain't July and it certainly isn't Christmas but as da elevator doors opened going up to da 3rd floor of Pearl Ridge Macy's I instinctively exclaimed,
"Oh hellllll no - Wassup Wit Dat!"
Da Wife just rolled her eyes at me and told me to keep moving as she knows all to well my boycotting policy of any/all stores dat has Christmas decorations or items out well before Thanksgiving. I forgot where I seen a full blown Christmas display last month - obviously it wasn't a store I go to often - but I didn't have any cameras at da time so I wasn't able to take a pic of dat.
Macy's is notorious for getting their Christmas stuff up hellah early and I know it's all about generating sales but seriously? Christmas in August and September? All together now...........
Wassup Wit Dat!
I actually have loosen my "code" on boycotting da last couple of years as it was really becoming a losing effort but if any store is going to put up Christmas stuff dis early, at da very least, put up da seasonal themes of da current ones as well.
For instance, da Target in Salt Lake has a small section for Christmas stuff against da wall stuffed in a corner - not in da main aisles - which I thought was pretty cool especially cause they had a WHOLE section dedicated to Halloween stuff! They had props, costumes, candy of course and just everything Halloween smack dab in da main aisle and then some.
Sorry, totally forgot to take a pic of their display (will do next time though) cause I was in shock from da Christmas stuff again.
I know some no care about stores doing "Christmas" early but let me ask you dis, do you go up to people in the month of June - or any oddah month besides December - saying, "where's your Christmas spirit?"
Just food for thought.
Anyways, in dis day and age of technology and every phone having a camera on it - if you no more, wassamattah you? - send me your pics of "Christmas" stores to boycott but even bettah yet, if you see a store dat has da "current" seasonal stuff happening, send me those to post!
