Christmastime in the city?

One year ago, I wrote about how there was no “war on Christmas” and this year it’s every bit as evident. The photo with this post shows a few flyers that arrived in our letterbox this week. Americans will note that “Christmas” is the universally chosen word.

Christmas displays started going up at our local Warehouse in October. The weekend before Halloween, the store had many times the display space devoted to Christmas stuff as to Halloween (one of these years, there’ll be no Halloween stuff at all—mark my words!).

We’ll get a lot more Christmas marketing from now on. I can both ignore and enjoy that. It’s a good space to be in.

BTW: Today is 12/11/10 here. I like symmetry.

Yes, but as I noted, its symmetry is, unfortunately, limited geographically.

Geographic limitations are clearly nothing I worry about!
