      Default Christmas on C C

      Do me a favour, give over doing Christmas in June, it's obscene. Anyone else feel the same, or is it just me ?

      It doesn't bother me if people buy in the January sales and put it away for Christmas, if they buy in June because money is tight so start to buy each month or if they scramble like around getting crushed in the crowds the week before Christmas. It's an expensive time of the year, so I think many people start shopping early.

      Lots of crafters have to start making Christmas things early otherwise they won't get it completed in time. I know loads of people who make cards /items for charities to sell to raise funds and they have to make these early as the charities hold fairs/events around Sept/Oct for people to buy in time for Christmas. I don't mind Christmas craft products being sold in June but it can get a bit boring having non stop Christmas for 6 months.

      must be me, but I still think it is obscene. Even my wife who is the crafter is refusing to watch it. I refuse to even think about Christmas before November. The whole season is a rip off in my book. This proves it.

      While I wouldn't call myself a religious fanatic and I don't very often "talk" about my beliefs I do despair about the whole commercialism of the Christmas story and this is just turning Christmas into yet another I.W farce.

      It's only as commercialised as you want it to be for goodness sake, if you don't want to watch, don't watch, if you don't want to buy, don't buy, it's quite simple really.

      The people who know the true meaning of Christmas time, like myself, know what it's about so wether shops sell cards in August or people buy gifts and put them away in Janury, it doesn't change how I feel, especially by a shopping channel.

    I already have so much stuff from previous Christmases I just can't justify buying more.

    Christmas is a great fun time for my family and I have to do lots of preparations in advance. So I buy things in every sale!
    I already started my crafts and decoration, I like to do lighting and candle decoration.
