  • I find it amusing to hear the complaint that stores are starting the Christmas ads earlier every year, with a time in November being quoted as an example.

    I can remember 30 years ago hearing the same complaint about carols being played on the muzak in October. But I was amused then because, 10 years earlier, my mother had been complaining about Chrismas decorations in a store in September.

    Christmas festivities have been starting "earlier" for at least 50 years. But, they still start with sporadic items
    • That phenomenon is not limited to Christmas decorations; everybody, no matter when they were born, seems to have a tendency to talk about how "they don't make 'em like they used to" or "kids nowadays".
      "...I keep hearing about how you've changed. I think, 'Weather changes...and we just keep making the same dumb mistakes.'"
