Which is Which?

After a late breakfast this morning, we decided to head out. The main purpose of the trip was to look at some PCs because that's the hubby's present to me for my 21st. :) We also wanted to look at some fireplaces that we've always wanted to put in the living room. We can't go with traditional ones because we don't have the space for it so it's kinda' challenging to look for one. Anyway, we hopped from one store to another and as soon as we entered the first store, one thing was clear...the holiday season IS just around the corner...or is it? It's only Halloween on Monday so we were quite taken aback when Christmas stuff greeted us at the door of the store. Are people sending out holiday invitations already as well or is it only the commercial establishment that are jumping the gun? Honestly, we can't even decide anymore if we should be looking at Halloween stuff or Thanksgiving stuff or Christmas stuff. It seems these 3 come as a "package deal" because you can't go in any store now that only advertises one of the 3. It seems that as soon as they put up Halloween stuff, Thanksgiving & Christmas stuff also go up...even they are months apart. Oh well...I guess they have to do what they have to do in order to survive, eh? It's just so confusing sometimes because if you don't know what you're looking for, you will really get lost and will end up asking...which is which? Maybe next year we can just put Santa and a witch with a turkey under the tree. What do you think?
