Muji ornaments
Does anyone else get annoyed with retail stores stocking Christmas stuff so early?
Normally that bugs the heck out of me. I guess it still does, let us have Thanksgiving
first, please. Even though I think it's ridiculous how early stores start pushing the
Holiday frenzy on us, I have to say that I'm ready for it this year. I've sort of
embraced the way, way too early mentality and sort of want to find an excuse to put up
Christmas lights. I won't do it now, don't worry. The moment Thanksgiving is over,
though, don't be surprised if I've got holiday boxes full of crap unloaded all over my
dining table.
See, I already bought some ornaments. These ones from Muji were irresistible. I think
I just want to keep it simple and very traditional, nothing crazy. Has anyone else out there given this any thought?

  1. i totally agree! its so easy to get into the holiday mood with it staring you in the face everywhere you turn! the only "christmas" thing i allow before is christmas music... i LOVE it! i hold out for as long a possible and then WHAM i embrace with open arms... usually a couple weeks before christmas! :D

  4. Lovely ornaments. I stock up on pressies for the kiddos throughout the year and then hide them all away until early December when the Christmas spirit is in full swing. I so look forward to decorating for Christmas, but definitely not before 2 week in December. The tree is my fav thing and I never want to take it down.

  6. Here in South Africa the chrismas things were out in the shops at the start of August. Totally ridiculous! Especially since we are going through a recession and people should not be spending money at all. I wouldn't be surprised if the easter decorations come out right after christmas day...

  8. I can't stand that either- especially when stores take away costumes and candy bags BEFORE Halloween in order to put up fake plastic trees (as you may have guessed, I got rather rankled this past October!). My only retaliation is not to buy anything before then, and I also try to buy as much as I can from local shops who need the business more, and who don't usually start stocking their holiday jazz until at least November!
