I spent a decade or so working in the retail industry. I hated it. As a result, I’ve learned to hate Christmas with a passion (The Passion Of The Christmas?). 12 hours a day of insipid music and frenzied shoppers who wouldn’t know Christmas spirit if it reared up and bit them in the ass.

Every year I watch in horror for the first overt advertisement or the first retail display. Good thing I don’t shop at Morrison’s in the UK.

“My Life As A Morrison’s Employee” is an interesting blog and the writer details the first appearance of Christmas merchandise which happened last Friday. *shudder*
