Christmas coming too early....

After having read the report in the local rag about card shops in Tonbridge starting to sell Christmas cards already (in mid-September for goodness sake!) I don't know what you all think about this subject but I'm reminded of a poem I wrote a couple of years ago about Christmas festivities coming too early and leading to confusion:

Christmas Comes Too Early
Christmas is coming
The Easter Bunny's getting fat,
Please put a penny for the Guy
In the old man's hat.
If you haven't got a penny
Some sweets will 'ave to do.
We shopped right through
Till New Year's Day
And missed it all, Oh drat!

Bah humbug Christmas always starts far too early. December 24th would be a good starting point!
