There are no words to describe how stupid I think this all-day event is.

 

Carry on....no talking

So is my kitchen.  DH has been making wooden bells, toy soldiers, snowcouples, and penguins.  They are "visiting" the countertops until we find a place to store them 'till Christmas.  LOL

Hi, Smiley Happy

 

I was in several stores yesterday and they were filled with Xmas in July stuff.  I was told even more will be put out in anticipation of 7/25. 

 

I'm sure, as it gets closer  to 7/25 , I'll see even more.

Preds, I understand crafting/building  Xmas stuff over the summer in anticipation of December.  I used to do some Xmas crafting over the summer. 

 

Does your husband sell them or make them for you? Gifts?

Re: Merry Christmas!! NOT!!!

I agree with all you ladies. It's just another day of cementing materialism over meaning. The almighty dollar! It's another reason I don't watch Q any more. People have lost their homes. Jobs are scarce because all this stuff is made in China.

I am glad I can check in on the forums occasionally and see what stuff they're hawking and laugh because I know I'm not spending money on junk. What greed these shoping channels exhibit, IMHO.
