"I stopped by my store to pick up tips and get a drink and there are several worker bees fully engaged in roll out. Seriously. It seems like it comes earlier every year. I find it kind of obnoxious, tbh [to be honest]."
I don't know; it seems about the right time of year. Years ago I would have said: Wait until after Thanksgiving, but nobody does that these days. I remember going into Starbucks on November 8 one year -- eight years ago, actually -- and hearing Christmas music. I don't think it's started that early in recent years.
Do you have your decorations up yet? Is it too early, or just about right?
