Actually I just studied my calendar and it's 90 days until Christmas. But it's never too soon for the folks at Walmart, apparently. I was in a neighborhood Walmart store today and here's what caught my eye.
I took a second look and realized those are artificial Christmas trees, already decorated with lights and on sale NOW!
But wait, there's more!
Yes, the weather has broken but it's still 85 degrees outside. And the Christmas decorations have already gone on sale.
I can remember being amazed when Thanksgiving "stuff" went on sale before Halloween had passed. But this display today truly bumfuzzled me. I was left with mouth agape. But I recovered in time to take these pictures and remember this old bit of doggerel.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue-ish.
If it wasn't for Christmas
We'd all be Jewish.
As the sign says, Merry Christmas everyone!
