I couldn't believe it when I walked in this morning and there was tinsel on the ballustrades, stars on the window panes and a Christmas tree on a window ledge.

Has the world gone mad ?

Yes it is ridiculous and overkill

The Costa at my workplace started serving the Christmas range of drinks and food on Halloween.

Hate me if you like, but I had one of their "ultimate Christmas toastie"s on Friday. In my defence, I'm 7 months pregnant and saw it and REALLY wanted it Grin

I love it! I normally hold off until December 1st before putting my declarations up but I’m tempted to go a week or two early this year!

Fair point, E4, but a Christmas menu in November, when it is still autumn, is preposterous. I guess it's just cynical marketing when all said and done.

PS. I DO like the Black Forest hot chocolate but I wait until December. Otherwise I'd be bored of its decadence too early.

Nov 6th is always the date that Christmas arrives at Costa.

It's actually the first Thursday of November....

However, I have obtained a copy of the Booth's Christmas catalogue. It came out about three weeks ago so it beats Costa. I haven't looked at it yet - should be eye-watering ! I once totalled the cost of everything in a Booth's Christmas catalogue. It topped £15,000.00.

Same here Breadfoam, but that's only because DS 28 buys all his Lego online, so I buy him a Lego eGift card every birthday and Christmas. DD's top and DS2's dress up will have to be bought online too, because I can't find anything close to what DD wants in the shops, and nowhere seems to have DS2's size. Everything else I hope to buy in the shops.
