In the Christmas and New Year TV guide I've spotted adverts inviting you to save for next year's Christmas hamper, as well as trips to Lapland to see Father Christmas in 2016.

Love that film, Moley. I watched The Family Stone on TV yesterday. My husband started to yell at me for watching one of my Christmas DVDs until I let him know - this is on network TV!!!

I've noticed over the years that The Bradford Exchange is always the first to advertise! Their stuff is beautiful

Also it was reported in the D***y M**l (I detest that execrable fascist rag) that the Waitrose supermarket was selling Christmas mincemeat and mulled wine in its' stores in June!

I was in World market today, and they had Terry's Chocolate Oranges. It's possible they carry them year round, but I never noticed.
They were also putting out Halloween/Day of the Dead things at Pier One today. I realize that isn't Christmas, but as you all know, by the time Halloween rolls around, the stores have definitely moved on to Christmas!

Two things over the weekend:

Wal Mart had their trees up and was starting to get their decorations out.

My grandson's stocking for our house came on Friday. No, he's not here yet officially, but he'll be here in about 3 weeks!
