"In this Festive Time of Year!"

So the Xmass shopping season, as opposed to the spiritual season has begun! I was at K Mart on 34th street this evening to buy socks, and shorts, and stumbled on the above. Martha Stewart designer Xmass stuff at bargain prices.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised since business interests are expecting the worse buying season in decades. So they're starting as early as they can. They would have started after July 4th if they though they could'a got away with it!

Speaking of bargains I just may stock up on some of these geegaws for my first Chirstmas open house at my new place.

Season Greetings!

A sure sign of commercial desperation.

Geez, it isn't even Halloween yet, and they got the Christmas stuff out already.

And while I wish everybody good holidays and intend to keep0 Christmas in my heart atfer my own fashion, I must say "Bah humbug!" to the greedy fools who can only see a day like Christmas in terms of how it might fatten their wallets.

G_d bless us, everyone.
