HERE COMES SANTA CLAUS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Bells were ringing at 7th and Montana this morning as the folks at Starbucks quietly discarded their Halloween merchandise in favor of something a bit more Jolly. No sooner had the Great Pumpkin rolled out of town than they began re-introducing their "Iconic Red Yuletide Cups." You know what that means: A sales pitch for Egg Nog Latte can't be far behind. Is it my imagination, or has Starbucks been cracking open the Mistletoe earlier and earlier each year? Next thing you know, they'll have us celebrating the Fourth of July in January. Let freedom -- and the cash registers -- ring ...!

Those cups look a little small for your average American, or is everyone a size zero at 7th and Montana?
Gaz ;-)

It's not just Starbucks, but everywhere. The Christmas decorations in the stores started going up before Halloween was over. It's getting bizarre. (Hugs)Indigo

I tell you, the scariest thing about Halloween is X-mas is right around the corner.

At Sears last week, we saw a bunch of Snoopys holding a pumpkin right by a big display of snowmen, angels, and penguins. What the heck?!

Mark took his dad out to the new Starbucks Sunday and he says already the store is playing Christmas music.
