Sorry if this is a bit of a rant, but I am incredibly tired of the holiday creep. I was walking through Costco the other day and they already have kids halloween costumes out on display. So, what do my kids say, but I want to get a costume for Halloween...My response, "It's July guys, we're not getting costumes". The point of this story is to ask, when should retailers put out holiday goods? IS there really anyone who plans for a holiday 3 months in advance?
