Where the hell is there a Woolworths and how far do I need to go to get there?Lau said:I was in Woolworths the other day. It was the 2nd of September, and they had an aisle of Christmas decorations.
Now I know some people who buy their presents from about now onwards, and personally I think this is insane, but I can see why someone might want to if they want to be hyper-organised, and don't want to miss out on stuff. But Christmas decorations? Now? Madness.
As for my family, any mention of it is banned until December, and we don't decorate until less than a week before. It makes it so much more Christmassy if you actually do all that stuff near the time.
We started last week. It all starts with a team free-for-all discussion, then I put it together to get it signed off by senior management, teams then have to place their orders and the CEO sets aside a half-day to sign his own batch...

Blimey! In all honesty, we only started early this year because one of our printers has a bit of an offer on, so we can get ours done a bit cheaper than usual. Otherwise I'd be getting it thrown at me to get sorted in about three months from now...Blue Velvet said:Last year's was a bit of pricey job. DL size 4pp folded, 300gsm matt art, 4 back 4, matt laminate and spot UV on the outer... came out to about 90p per unit. Think we're trimming our sails this year.
