“My hus­band makes me wait un­til Novem­ber to put the tree up. He lets me go through Hal­lowe’en and then I’m straight to the shops to pre­pare.” It is a com­mon com­plaint that shops start to sell­ing Christ­mas prod­ucts ear­lier and ear­lier each year. An­drew Reid, sales man­ager at The Range, said this is a mis­con­cep­tion though – at least where his store is con­cerned. “Ev­ery­body thinks it gets ear­lier and ear­lier ev­ery year but it’s the same. We’ve been here for three years and it’s been the same time ev­ery year. “Last year we didn’t open it up un­til we had fin­ished putting all the dec­o­ra­tions out so peo­ple think it was later but it’s just that this year we’re let­ting them shop as we go.” Asked if he thinks it’s too early for Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions, An­drew is un­equiv­o­cal in his re­sponse. “You have to think it’s only three more pay­days un­til Christ­mas – Septem­ber, Oc­to­ber, Novem­ber. “You get your dec­o­ra­tions, your presents, then your food. “Peo­ple think it’s too early be­cause it’s be­fore Hal­lowe’en but peo­ple want to get pre­pared. “We’re just giv­ing them what they want.”

What is hap­pen­ing? It is far too early. In Poland there is noth­ing un­til De­cem­ber 1
