Christmas in August....? Really?

Did any one else catch that news story on GMA this morning? Sam's Club in Tampa FL have all the Christmas trees, wreaths, paper, bulbs, packages, all of it out on display and for sale.

This is August!! I remember the day there was outrage when it started coming out before Thanksgiving. But now we see it in August.

We love Christmas and all but Christmas decorations this early is crazy in our opinion.

Hey if they keep backing it up, it will be back to December...

Two answers: First to answer your question: Why right there in the Bible according to the first church of the Almighty Dollar because (you know that song "Old Time Religion"

Give me that old time religion (X3)
It's good enough for me.

Though the love of it roots Evil
still there's those who seem to feel though
That ALMIGHTY GOD's a DOLLAR (Hold up a single during this lien)
And there's not enough for me

Give me that......

(Verse (C) me, public domain, copyright, May be used in performance without additional permission, if recorded send me a MP3)

(NOTE: I am not kidding, I wrote that verse)

Now a better answer:

Sam's club is a wholesaler, Many stores shop at Sam's and order in quanity.. I know this because I've been in line behind many at Costco which is their #1 competitor and works the same way.

Thus they need to be a bit farther ahead of the season.. Still, August is, in my opinion, a bit too far ahead.
Home is where I park it!
