I am all for planning ahead and working ahead to make life easier but do you really start your Christmas shopping in the summer? If so, the department stores are ready for you.
If you're somehow not familiar with the "Christmas creep" phenomenon, it describes how stores are busting out their Christmas merchandise, displays, and sales earlier and earlier. But this might be the worst example yet.
The Independent reported that last week, approximately 149 days before Christmas, some department stores ALREADY broke out their Christmas stuff.
