Well today as I did my weekly grocery shopping at Walmart. I checked the Garden Center and sure enough they've started to put the Christmas stuff out. It was just the big stuff like those big blow up snow scenes and some other little decorations but it has officially begun!
Well don't get me wrong Walmart had their Halloween stuff out too but that was in one of the isles. The Christmas stuff was in the Garden Center. Wow that's interesting that Sears/K-Mart is now going to buy Radio Shack!
Yay! Can't wait!!!!! One of the best places to go to out here is the mall in Ballston---Arlington VA, or the mall in Georgetown. I can't wait for the piano players and the music! Oh wow the Christmas music!!!
I'm sure these malls are everywhere, but the stores are on the perimeter so you can see up to the roof and the center of the building is basically just escalators and elevators with the top floors being mainly offices. About 4 levels being stores. One piano player (usually has a baby grand) is on the bottom floor so the music drifts up and all around. Then the bannisters all the way up are decorated with lights.
Good atmosphere for spending money I don't have! I'd love to get a huge blow up snowman!
I went to JCPenney and Peebles department stores earlier tonight and they were decorating their Christmas trees. I was shocked! Might have to go back later on in the week just to see what all they have out after they are done decorating. 8)
