Chia pets kick ass.
They do…. just don’t smoke them!
I would pick the gift card, all my chia pets were goners :o)
Yeah, at least with the gift card, you could eat. Actually, I guess you could eat the Chia roughage as well…
Not just chileh, but possum chileh! Mmmmmmm!!!
November? Ha! We had our first “Christmas jumper day” here at works ages ago 😦 I refused to partake on the grounds that it was still “British Summer Time” and Halloween was still weeks away.
We may live to see the day the decorations are just kept up year round. That would be the essence of horror…
I totally want a Chia Donkicorn.
If someone could invent rainbow grass, I’ll bet they’d make a fortune selling them!
It IS a most curious custom. I got a note from TCM today letting us know that their Christmas Movie Collections are now available. Eventually, Christmas will extend to all 12 months. Like by next year, maybe. Then we will never have to take down the decorations.
Oh… didn’t anyone tell you? We’ve already begun celebrating for Xmas 2015. Christmas of ’14 was so last Spring!
HaHaHa!! Too funny!! Also the Santa Claws scene is HILARIOUS! and the expressions…..expressive. 😀
I like expressive expressions!
There was an article in the paper a while back about someone checking the stats from internet search engines and people were using Christmas-related terms as early as August, which is the earliest yet. So it’ll be May next year, and probably December the following year.
In July of 1999, we had Christmas lights on a feature at Mecca. I kid you not.
That was an isolated incident, but still one of my favorite personal stories about holiday in retail…
Technically, they’re just coloured lights. They’re only Christmas lights if used at Christmas time. Unless of course they depict a nativity scene or Santa and reindeer.
That is true… especially now that we have stringed lights for every occasion. But that concept didn’t really exist at the time, and the boxes clearly showed the lights being displayed in the winter time! The lights in question were the “icicle” type lights that became insanely and unexpectedly popular the Christmas before. Mecca wanted to get a head start on selling them for the next season… but putting them out in the middle of Summer was still pretty ridiculous!
Just a little. People will only buy Christmas lines in the summer if they’re reduced. Or appear to be reduced, anyway.
