Attention shoppers, it too early to set up your Christmas tree!
I went into a Canadian Tire in September to buy my son some elbow pads for the upcoming hockey season.
I remember noticing the Halloween decorations were already out and thinking , isn’t it a bit early?
When I walked over to take a closer look they were removing the summer stuff and putting out ( not Halloween) but Christmas merchandise.
I mentioned to the clerk, ‘wow you guys are getting jump start on the season’.
He told me it was left over stock from last Christmas they wanted to move as the summer stuff was not selling anymore.
No need for bug repellant and sleeping bags after Labour Day.
Okay I can understand that, I guess.
I can even understand putting up your outdoor lights last weekend because the weather was nice, but surely you’re not turning them on yet, right?
Well why not?
What was really ironic was when I was passing by a house on Saturday the man in the driveway was unloading his golf clubs after one last swing on the course. In his front window, a lit Christmas tree.
I thought I was in Florida!

Wednesday on The Scott Thompson Show!
