    I just got back from Hallmark cards. THEY HAVE CHRISTMAS STUFF OUT IN AUG1. They said they had them out in July. WHY?????? Let summer, fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving come and go before putting Christmas stuff out. Uncalled for in July and Aug.

    Just think, eventually it will be pushed back so far that it will actually be at the appropriate time.

    You do know Hallmark is absolutely Anti-Gun? Many other stores handle cards.

    I guess there is no reason for the guy down the street to take his Christmas lights down now. LOL

    I'm looking forward to some Christmas like weather though. Where I'm at we had 16 days of 100 degree plus heat in July. And August has started the first two days of being over a 100. I'm looking for some relief. Heat and humidity. I've had enough.

    Hi Auctioneer,
    I work in a Christmas store just outside of Rapid City, SD. We are open almost year round (we close right after Christmas and re-open in May).

    We also have a huge NFL memorabilia/collectable shop in the store. Our main customers are tourists and we have been exceptionally busy this year.

    There's something about hearing Christmas music every day that just puts me in a good mood. By the time our customers leave the store, they are singing along to the music. I think it actually makes the temperature feel a little cooler outside too! Haha.

    I know many people don't share my sentiments, but to me, the Christmas season and spirit should be a way of life and celebrated EVERY day!

    Oh, by the way, only 145 days until Christmas!!!

    Char

    Many years ago I worked in a Hallmark store...there is a very practical, business reason for putting out Christmas stock in July. Those cards out in July were left over from last year. They need to liquidate them to make room for the new stuff that comes for this year. Ornaments are another story. Some of the new ones do get put out very early. Serious collectors want to be sure they get the series they have collected for many years, before the casual buyer takes the whole supply.
