Christmas in August, the wonderful world of the supermarket.

One of the more... interesting, decorations we've had on our tree.

One of the more… interesting, decorations we’ve had on our tree.

Yesterday I did the weekly food shop with my family at an unnamed supermarket and I noticed something… interesting. Selection boxes and chocolate Advent calendars. I’m not joking.

Now I love Christmas, I mean really love Christmas. Both my mother and I like making our own decorations and cards ready for the Holiday. We have ever since I was little, but even we have our limitations. (We’re not allowed to start until the October half term)

I understand that Christmas in 2013 is very much a watered down commercialized version of a long running celebration day. Despite it being one of the most important dates on the Christian calendar it is celebrated by many who completely disregard religion and I accept that. I would be lying if I said I’m still an avid church goer and that I didn’t have my own personal reservations towards organised religion but really?

It’s August… well September now but still.

Most stores still have their “Back-2-skool” range out and no where is even looking at Halloween yet. Are we really ready for Christmas? No.

If you’re one of those people buying ahead already… really?
