Get them while you can!!!!!

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am pleased to announce that, on the 14th of October, at around 70 days to Christmas, you can now buy your Christmas trees, Christmas cakes and Christmas decorations on your local Migros.

Do not miss this oportunity, or you might be too late! Who wants to spend their winter autumn days without the christmassy feeling?



(I think the cash ladies thought I was crazy went I burst into laughs next to the pine trees).

Either the cashier will call her mates to tell them that there is a new laughing gas emitting from the trees or more likely, her assessment of you is correct.

WTF? That's crazy. They put that stuff out earlier and earlier every year. Last year my husband flew into a blind rage when he went to one of the big stores on the 23rd of Dec. and they had already put away the x-mas stuff and had out the Valentine's day gear.

The Autumn decoration stuff is already selling for half the price. Apparently, Autumn season is OUT! (That reminds me, I still have the Easter crown on the door... oopsie daisy)

I believe the idea is to buy a new one each 10 days!
