Bah, humbug!

I can use that well known Scroogeism for holidays in general right? Or is it strictly for Christmas only?
Because since I got back to London after my Christmas break that's how I've felt about what's going on as illustrated by the picture. Most shops are selling chocolate eggs and other Easter treats. According to my boss some started on boxing day. That is the 26th of December! Selling crap for a holiday that takes place in April! I mean what the bloody hell is going on?!
It's like all these so called holidays are merging into one great big one. Celebrating consumerism and worshiping at the altar of Brand Name Product.
So I repeat: Bah, humbug!

I am guilty of doing my Christmas shopping in August when my kids were little.
I didn't have decorations out or anything like that but those gifts were bought and put away.

That's just being organised and I have no problem with that, I actually wish I could do that rather than the last minute dash around the shops fighting all the other time optimists the weekend before christmas. What I do have a problem with is that these days you can't seem to turn around without having tat associated with some holiday or other shoved down your throat. What you did, I'm impressed with!
