    I must say that I was really impressed that the city of Beverly Hills were putting up their Christmas decorations very early this year - before the end of September!!! Turns out that it was only set decorations for a movie, so by yesterday they were gone... until they put up the real ones around the end of November. Here I are a few pics that I snapped before they removed them.

    The true mark of the season is when Christmas music starts being played.

    To be fair, there's a reason for that. Costco sells to merchants and small businesses, so if THOSE people need to have seasonal merchandise in stock for their buyers, then Costco needs to have the stuff on the shelves that much earlier. I read in one of Costco's newsletters once that they try to stay two seasons ahead, which is why you'll see Christmas stuff start to come out at the end of the summer.

    I was in an Academy Sports store a couple of weeks ago, and they had music piped in and playing very faintly. I was looking at a couple of things, when something in my brain started freaking out, and I realized it was the music. They were playing that song "Merry Christmas to You" or whatever it is named. I almost walked out of the story because of that. I made a joke about it when checking out, and the cashier said she just tunes out all their music because of stuff like that.

    My coworker said "Christmas in Beverly Hills", but they might just be saying that to all those who ask in order to keep the questions to a minimum.

    I'm sorry that they took the sets down, it would have been neat if they had left them up until the end of January :)

    That's crazy. It's way to early for Christmas music. Mid November seems about right, but I would prefer they wait until after Thanksgiving is over. I was raised in one of those families where the tree goes up the day after Thanksgiving. Of course living in Texas it's kinda hard to get into the spirit since we don't really have seasonal weather here. :(
