It makes me laugh....we are going through a global recession right now - indefinate unemployment of the highest level and clear manipulation in the financial markets and yet they have us thinking about xmas: guilt trips, more debt and borrowing from the banks, credit cards, high interest rates. it gets better and better right?
So how do they recover the banking sector for the year 2010. Get people spending.....early. Keep us sweat when they have it all to gain, and leave us dry when the mist clears.

I wonder how much of the Christmas paraphenalia being put up in stores now is simply holdover junk from last Christmas' anemic sales?
