Christmas 2009: retail gets underway

It’s official: the Christmas season is now starting to make itself known in stores. 

Today, while in a High Street stationers, I noticed a display of “across the miles” Christmas cards – you know, the ones you send to friends and relatives overseas, sending them early in order to pay lower postage costs.  The trade-off being that the cards are sent by slower sea-freight.

Because I’ve already tiptoed into starting my Christmas shopping, the sight of the Christmas card display did not fill me with shock or dread.  Actually, if anything I thought it was a little on the late side, what with this nearly being October and all – I’ve heard of Christmas displays being in the shops as early as August.  

So…here we are!  Christmas is officially on its way!  Now is a good time to start making lists.
