The month of February has been ushered in with a bang! We're having the biggest snowstorm of the season today! The lovely snow has been coming down all morning! I say "lovely" in two tones--seriously, because I love being inside and watching the snow come down, and sarcastically, because I really don't like cold weather and the accompanying snow! So it's a toss up! At least I wore my boots today!
Now that February is here, I won't mind the stores having all the red and pink heart merchandise out. At the beginning of January, I overheard this conversation between mother and small daughter:
"Look at all the Valentine stuff, Mommy."
"Is Valentines almost here?"
I've even spotted Easter stuff. C'mon, do they really think people are going to buy it at the beginning of the year? Oh dear, I better buy this Easter towel...they might run out of them before Easter! LOL
We're being merchandised to death. Perhaps the store's marketing manager figures if you have something in front of people long enough, that they'll buy it whether they want it or not. I guess you could call it a pet peeve of mine. =) It just annoys me when the main aisles of stores are flooded with holiday items for a holiday that is months away...and most of the items are cheap junk.
Ok, done now! ;-)
Have a great day, and a marvelous February!
