Christmas Watch 2008
Christmas decorations are, again, appearing unseasonally early. Is global warming to blame? Anyway, here's the offenders I've spotted so far:
|6 Oct ||Croydon Borough Council ||on lamp-posts in Thornton Heath town centre |
|27 Oct ||House of Fraser ||Oxford St |
|27 Oct ||Debenhams ||Oxford St |
|28 Oct ||Wandsworth Borough Council ||Tooting Broadway |
|10 Nov ||Fortnum & Mason* ||Picadilly |
|10 Nov ||many of the shops on ... ||... Oxford Street |
|11 Nov || ||Regent Street |
* you could argue that their window displays are winter displays, as they do also have spring, summer and autumn displays.
As the middle of November approaches, we are reaching the time of year when it might just about be acceptable for shops to start Christmassing themselves up. So I'll only add truly egregious offenders from now on.
