Today is the first day of November, 2016. Yesterday was Halloween.
Several of my neighbors already had their Christmas lights turned on and reindeer in their yards.
I was in Lowes last night. In the front of the store I could evaluate both barbecue grills and snow plows. The garden center offered both grass seed and salt for melting ice.
Staples starts selling back-to-school supplies in friggin' _May._
Some 2017 cars have been on sale since last spring.
At this rate, pretty soon each season will be _every_ season.
Holidays may continue to merge. Just as Lincoln's Birthday and Washington's Birthday have blended to give us Presidents Day, pretty soon Parents Day could replace both Mothers Day and Fathers Day. Thanksgiving could be on Election Day. July Fourth could be on New Years Day. Many retailers now entice us with Pre-Black-Friday deals on random days of the year. Christmas could be on Halloween.
Or, maybe every day will become Christmas.
Some Chinese restaurants already display Christmas decorations every day of the year. Maybe it's because they're not sure when it really is. I understand the confusion.
