  1. Last weekend (Nov 3rd) I was passing through Millstreet (on my way home to Beaufort) and I notice that Christmas Decorations are already up and lit on the Centra Supermarket near the Church. This must be the earliest I have ever seen them put up…..continuing on through Killarney there wasnt a sign of Christmas… so it led me to wonder something was wrong in Millstreet?
    Surely the shop management has some bit of intelligence and decency to understand that November 3rd is not anywhere close to Christmas…..

    So why do the poor people of Millstreet have to put up with blatent Christmas-in-your-face at the start of November?

    Cork City turns on its lights on Dec 8th

    Killarney is usually the friday closest to Dec 1st.

    Even the AMERICANS dont put up or turn on Christmas until after Thanksgiving….. (thats the end of November to You and me).

    So does anyone think that the people of Millstreet really will be tired with christmas well before december begins this year……especially in Millstreet.

    Come on Centra…take a break from the need to be always trying for the hard sell……let christmas be for December and a bit of January.

    off with those lights and take them down for a month.
