Subject: Christmas presents itself early

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/08/09 at 12:45 pm

Some four-and-a-half months before Christmas day, a range of festive goods is on sale at a top department store.

Selfridges Christmas shop traditionally opens in late August, but has launched earlier than ever this year to cash in on the tourist trade.

A spokeswoman said: "It gets earlier and earlier every year. This year there are a lot of tourists in London because of the situation with sterling."

Christmas shops at the Manchester and Birmingham branches open in October.

Over here the the Halloween stuff is vying with the Christmas stuff for space.  It is awful.

Yep.  Costco has Halloween costumes mingled with Christmas ribbon.  Lame. :P
