Went to a hardware store last night (my Partner is ripping up the carpet and putting in new flooring) and as we walked in, we were assaulted with Christmas cheer. Given the past few weeks, I was digging it but a couple walked in after us and one of them was complaining it was too early for Christmas stuff. πŸŽ„ I was inclined to disagree but I didn’t say anything…just smiled beneath my mask. πŸ“·

Christmas display at a hardware store: two Santa's standing in front of a series of pre-lit Christmas trees (some green, some sprayed with fake snow), and a giant arch made of holly, ribbons and bows.
