Advent of Hate 2011 – Day 2

Big toy stores and department stores in major cities often have massive Christmas displays in their shop windows. These are part showboating and part enticement to enter the store. I don’t hate those.

What I do hate are inappropriate shops feeling they have to join in too. No sooner have the Halloween decorations been removed from our local opticians then up go a handful of half-hearted Christmas decorations. Who the hell wants prescription glasses for Christmas? Do you have to let Santa know you are -2.0 in your left eye?

Remember kids, seeing stuff is for life not just for Christmas.
