If they had have done, I might have bought a bauble or two off them for speaking my language.

:D. Go on, buy a bauble and put it up!

To be fair to these guys, Christmas is their business. I know it seems early to us, but to these guys it's their sole focus. They need to get people spending or they lose money and people lose jobs. I admire their hustle!

Yes, but I'm saying that's their business, how they make a living. I don't begrudge them that!

And I'll take a pass on the Easter eggs, thanks. Pleased

There are shops around the country that sell Christmas decorations and other Christmas items all year round. There's been one in Lechlade, Gloucestershire for many years and I came across one in Sidmouth only last week. There used to be one opposite London Bridge Station but that appeared to have gone last time I was up that way.

Given the title, it's entirely reasonable for someone to sing that song on any (or indeed every) day of the year, isn't it?
