When I see Christmas stuff in the stores before Halloween, I twitch a little, but figure, hey, some people like to get an early start with their consumerism. But today is 6 days past the 4th of July, not the middle of October, and this was the scene OUTSIDE my neighborhood Hallmark (outside and through the front store windows, not in some back corner somewhere):
Back by popular demand? Really? Is there an army of screaming grandparents out there trying to finish Timmy's Christmas list before Labor Day?
