    I guess I should consider myself guilty of "helping" to push Christmas early, mainly because I buy my Hallmark Keepsake ornaments when I see them. This year, they had a G1 My Little Pony ornament, and I *had* to get it when I saw it!

    So as it turns out, a new psychological study suggests that excessive Christmas music (and repetitive Christmas music at that) actually drives people crazy.

    That's almost as amazing as that survey that was conducted in London almost ten years ago that suggest kids don't like clowns.

    Well I think they mostly mean people in retail who have to hear Christmas music all day long for months, lol.

    Over here, they didn't start on the Christmas stuff until November hit. So at least in some places they're reeling it in.

    Radio stations (not around here) have made the switch already to Xmas music.

    Yes, they're shoving it down early each and every year. Which is why I appreciate the anarchical antics of :hungry: destroying the gingerbread house created for DHS this year in his own inimitable fashion in a video part of said article over at toughpigs.com with characters from Toy Story and Frozen.

    As for me, I'd prefer it if they could bring the NBC Haunted Holidays Holidays take-over from California's park to Florida's. *Shrugs.

    My mom and I went to the store today and we saw a bunch of Christmas stuff already. They even had trees and lights on display. Can't they just wait until after Thanksgiving??

    CBS is already airing the good ol' Hershey's Kisses ad.



    Waiting for the M&Ms ad to show up now...

    I can't stand all the Christmassy stuff happening so early, but I actually wouldn't mind seeing the M&M ad.

    Can’t stand the Hershey’s ad at all.
