Continuing with yesterday’s theme, I present a conversation with some colleagues.
Professor X: I was at the mall yesterday, and everything is already dressed up for Christmas. I couldn’t believe it.
Professor Y: Yeah, Walgreen’s is the same way — it’s all seasonal holiday stuff now. Is it just me, or are the stores trying to push Christmas earlier and earlier?
Professor X: Just imagine… a few more iterations, and store’s will never have to take down their decorations.
Me: Ah, that’ll never happen. I don’t think most stores will ever go into full Christmas mode until after Halloween.
Professor Y: And why is that?
Me: I just can’t imagine to many stores willing to stock their shelves with both the Baby Jesus and candy-dispensing Satan at the same time.
Although, truth be told, that would be awesome.
