    Its fucking disgusting what corporate america has done to this once fun holiday..

    I can only imagine that Wal-Mart has had their shit set up since the 4th of July

    I remember last year going to a Fry's electronics right after Halloween to buy some shit

    and the store already was blasting Xmas music... all the aisles were already decked out in Xmas decoration

    I asked the dude at the register if it sucked having to listen to corny Xmas music all day long

    He said it was pretty horrible and that it just numbed the holidays for him

    You've got to be fucking kidding me, already? Wait until Halloween at least. I had a feeling this would happen. Stores are going to start putting up Christmas shit after Labor Day.

    It is amazing. Christmas now is just a big, 4 month money fest for these big companies. Thanksgiving in stores has been gone for years. Halloween will be out of the stores in a few years too. Insane.

    Costco had their artificial trees up before the end of August here. A joke.

    I know I've heard in the past that stores place their next Christmas inventory orders right when Christmas is finished.

    It does get ridicules when you need to walk past the Christmas aisles to find the Halloween candy.

    Note how freely they use the word Halloween while burying the word "Christmas" (when they use it at all.)

    It used to be such a beautiful, happy time of year. Now it's vulgar, tacky, grossly commercialized and just one more target for the Social Justice Warriors to attack.

    I'll; be observing the day as quietly and privately as I can this year.

    My local Walmart has Halloween and Christmas stuff up. They have this inflatable haunted house with an inflatable graveyard - creepy as fuck. As a kid, I'd have a panic attack going to a house displaying that. Now kids have their parents with them and T or T ends at sundown so nothing is scary.
