I was at Wal-Mart over the weekend. They usually play music throughout the store to enhance my shopping experience. As I was trying on a pair of pants in the men’s department, the music caught my attention.
Was that a Christmas song?
I listened intently for a few seconds. Yes, it was indeed a Christmas song and when that one ended, another played. I guess it shouldn’t surprise me but I believe some retailers are now waiting until the day after Halloween and then immediately swinging into Christmas mode. In this manner, they maximize their Christmas retail period with the full 54 shopping days. Crazy.
Anyways, I decided to go with the pair of acid-wash jeans which I will wear to work tomorrow morning.
