I’m not making this up! But Christmas in October?

I’m not making this up (as that silly woman Theresa May would say) but earlier today I shopped at Tescos in Accrington and was greeted by the tree in the photo.


We’re only just out of October and Tesco are now promoting the  Christmas shopping season. It reminds me of when I was with Reader’s Digest we used to promote Christmas Gift subscriptions in September! 


We are yet to celebrate the survival of an attempt to end parliamentary democracy by Guy Fawkes on 5th November, and at 11 o’clock on November 11 we remember the millions who have died in wars around the world. Even so, Tesco are already looking toward the next, and biggest selling season…Christmas!


Of course, even before Father Christmas drops off his last present the elves have to preparing for the 2012 Xmas


That’s good planning, and no good Santa Clause would be without a planner.


But let’s not forget the many whose lives were sacrificed so that we can enjoy the Christmas bean feast.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
