I have a pet theory about why we're seeing Christmas stuff in stores so early (even earlier than usual this year, it seems). Since Thanksgiving is seen as "politically incorrect", marketing and advertising people are now ignoring it and going directly to the next most profitable holiday after Halloween-which is Christmas.

Watched "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" today.

It's a must-do for every holiday season.

I think that's part of it. I think the bigger reason though is just how important the Christmas season is to businesses and the economy at large. It's the biggest spending time of the year, and is so vital that it essentially sets the tone for the rest of the year. 

It doesn't help that Thanksgiving just can't compete in this department. If Thanksgiving was as vital to the economy as Christmas was then we might have a lot more waiting to do before the Christmas stuff starts getting rolled out.

That and some people enjoy going out for Chinese. During Christmas too. I think this originates from "A Christmas Story".

We went to Sam's Club and got two pecan pies for a Thanksgiving luncheon at my mom's job. Them suckers cost like $11.00 each!

Stores have no shame in robbing people.

Still cheaper then Marie Caldendars though. They sell pies for like $20. And the fancy gourmet pie places where I live sell tiny pies for $5.

Mr Magic
$5 pies sound like a fair deal.
