It’s October, and I’m wondering if it’s too early to mention Christmas … or not?
Are you eagerly awaiting the time when its acceptable to hang the Santa stockings? Have you secretly been googling Santa sacks, Santa letters and cool new ideas for wrapping presents this year? Or NOT (definitely not)?!
Are you one of the organised and Christmas enthusiasts like 30% of the UK population who start shopping September (the official term for such people and organisations who embrace Christmas at this stage is the ‘Christmas Creep/ers‘) OR are you one of the more ‘wait until December’ people (which it seems are dwindling in numbers these days)?
Originally, way back in the day, the Christmas season was only for 12 days – the days that stretched from Christmas Day itself to January 6th, but the economic opportunities even as far back as the early 1900’s saw this season stretch out substantially to be more in line with the Christian Advent Season which started at the beginning of December. And it seems we have evolved from this even further, no matter where you are in the world … with Christmas starting most acceptably at the end of October.
I’m pretty happy and comfortable about that – but thats because I love it!
Today we have officially opened the Love From Santa doors today for Christmas 2015 – with 11 wonderful weeks of Christmas anticipation, wonderful, excitement and magical fun ahead of us. Checkout our beautiful range of Santa stockings and Santa sacks + our really gorgeous and cleverly written Santa Letters.
I think I have officially put Christmas on your radar now, if it still feels a little uncomfortable thats OK, we will be here waiting when you are ready.
PS I love this shot from the Huffington Post! Doesn’t it just encapsulate all that is wonderful about Christmas? This was taken in AUGUST.
