That match is the only cricket match a lot of people go to all year. It's not unreasonable that they might want to buy cricket presents there.

 

Because in July everyone is thinking about Christmas and at Christmas everyone is thinking about county cricket.

I have done all my xmas shopping by November unless I'm buying fresh food of some sort. All my cads and presents are wrapped and handed out by 1st December.

 

October to December is peak season in the waste industry so I'm too busy to be xmas shopping. I also have to post cards early to places like Australia. They normally only take a week but need to be posted earlier at xmas.

 

I started making my Christmas cards in July but I haven't finished them all yet.

Wouldn't say retailers are being greedy more like customer demand! I remember a time when mince pies were onky available towards Christmas and the number of people that complained throughout the year was unbelievable so there is demand and the shops are catering for this!

Also maybe people want to do their shopping experience early because we don't a have 9-5 Monday to Friday office jobs, some of us work in retail and for us folk people go manic at this time of year. Always better to be prepared than not to be prepared!

You call it sad, I call it organised and Christmas should start ramping up just after bonfire night.
