Seasonal Creep

Every year we lament the seasonal creep. Stores have Christmas Trees on display before Halloween, holding off until after Thanksgiving is a tradition long gone from the retail world. Soon Back-to-school will mark the advent of the Christmas shopping season.

Yesterday I witnessed a seasonal creep situation that was beyond my imagination. This catalog was an affront to all taste. The wife regularly receives the Eddie Bauer catalog. Yesterday's version was the "Spring Preview Edition". I kid you not. It had shorts and jackets and swim suits. Here we are just barely fall, not even winter yet,and the folks at EB are touting the Spring Collection?
