We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

I adore Christmas, so I love that it comes early – not so much the retailer push (I don’t care much either way, I tend to do my shopping early anyway!), but I love all the music and decor.

Quite simply, YES. It is not only inconvenient and unnecessary, but it turns us into ridiculously greedy consumers. Instead of buying like crazy through December, we buy like crazy throughout November and December now, sometimes even starting in October. Personally, I do not have the money to conform to the industry’s hopes of more money-spending, but I do feel sorry for those who do participate in this and end up broke or feeling like they cannot possibly keep up. I certainly feel this way about MAC holiday collections. This year they went way overboard.

MAC did go overboard with holiday this year, IMO! Anyone with the collecting mentality is going to go nuts, since so many items came out. It’s great to see so many lovely products available, but it’s tough to budget appropriately sometimes.

first I have to ask whats a IAWTC?

Secondly, I sooooooooooo agree with Skyler!! Which is one of the reasons I took the route of making my xmas gifts this year….F corporate america and its never ending marketing. Start November I try and avoid any and all stores that cater to the xmas mass consumerism crowd. Which is kinda irritating because I need to hit the mall, IKEA or Target once in a while for various items and for the months of Nov, Dec and Jan its just a nightmare to get out and about with all the xmas madness.

I like the products they release, but its a bit unsettling to have Christmas things promoted before Halloween. This year I got my presents from the World Vision website. No sore feet, and someone is getting a Christmas goat!

Tekoa,
I googled World Vision, but all I found was a “sponsor poor african kids” kinda website and nothing about goats 🙁 Can you post a link or something, I was really interested in checking it out.

Haha, definetly. I think it’d be better to show the collections, but not release them so early. Then people can see what they like, and save up/write it on their list. Cuz I mean, October =/= Christmas. December = Christmas.

I had to approve your comment, that’s why it took a bit before it posted – any comment with two links or more is generally spam, so it has to wait for approval 🙂

Ugh, yes! Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE the holiday season & everything that comes with it – the decor, the music, the charm. But it seems to come earlier every year. I was at the mall last week and every single store was ALREADY playing Christmas music! I swear they used to start the day after Thanksgiving. Now, its the day after HALLOWEEN!! I think I’m going to be burnt out by the time Christmas actually gets here.

Aww!! I love Christmas – I have my tree up. I think I’m just immune to the early push by retailers; I just enjoy the decor and music, lol.
