I love my job. There is never any doubt or uncertainty when it come to the love I have for my job. I know I might sound full of it to some of you, but I am being 100% honest when I say I love my job. I love discovering new trends and showing them to others. I love discovering new amazing companies that I can effortlessly add into our categories. As annoying as it probably sounds to some of you. I just love my job.
No matter any way you flip it I technically work in retail. While retail is this vast ocean filled to the brim with other stores. There is one thing that many, not all, but many have in common. Of which I happen to hate.
It's The holidays...
I enjoy the holiday season just like the next gal. I love the warm, sparkle, magical, feeling that comes with the holiday season. However as the years have progressed I have noticed that the holidays seems to be making an earlier and earlier appearance in numerous amounts of retail stores.
This year I spotted Christmas decorations up and ready to sell as soon as August.
August! Christmas is in December. Why put out Christmas products four months in advance?
I personally think that the action is a silly one and for me only helps to cheapen the feeling of Christmas. I can't possibly be the only one, but seeing holiday decorations hypes me up and gets me really excited. However when you see them four months in advance that hype/excited feeling diminishes and falls away. I have felt this way my entire life and can't help, but to be sadden that a feeling I loved so much has been lost.
I am fully aware of Why stories choose to put out holiday merchandise so in advanced.
While I have no power when it come to other retails and how/when they choose to present to the public their holiday merchandise. I do have some say for my home. My family and I choose to celebrate each holiday individually and at the traditional scheduled time. We decorate for Halloween, for Thanksgiving, and for Christmas all during their perspective months. This is just something we do to keep the warm, sparkle, magical feeling of each holiday alive and well.
What's the one thing you hate about retail?
When do you decorate for Christmas?
Let us know we love learning and growing and a majority of that comes from you!
