I was reading on Hobby Lobby's facebook page last summer when they were already putting Christmas items out in late June, probably only 1 or 2 aisles then. There were so many people ranting over it and telling Hobby Lobby they will never shop in their store again. Umm... You don't HAVE to walk down those aisles!!! Hobby Lobby is a HUGE store and it's real easy to ignore the Christmas aisles if they bother you and just keep moving. Why on earth would you stop shopping at a store just because of Christmas items. You would think they were stocking the shelves with highly offensive stuff. I never realized Santa, snowmen and reindeer were so offensive!

Preach it !!!! I agree 100% .....If you DONT want to see the Christmas / Easter or whatever season stuff THEN DONT LOOK AT IT...Dont take it from the rest of US who DO want to see it.......Sermon over.

This is just what I was thinking !!! xo

Well darn it. I just promised ChristmasHeart that I would move to canada to be her assistant so she had time to come back here. Maybe I can get hired on at your place too and Seawaters can just fly me back and forth.

Brrrr!!! It's getting cold out there and the sleet that we have been getting is turning to snow. The roads are in really good shape though.

Have a great day everyone!
bless you, I hope you feel better quickly doll!

what's up w/ all the turnover there? dude, you talk like you're ancient or something. we have 1 life to live, look around for something else in the meantime. the feeling of being some where you are unhappy is rough. I hope things work out for you Tex.
