PETERS – More than just an irritation, Christmas Creep could be health hazard

CHRISTMAS CREEP shows no signs of abating, does it?

Costco, of course, has long been the retail standard-bearer for introducing holiday merchandise well ahead of the holidays themselves.

This year, holiday items showed up in Costco in August and no one batted an eye.

Other retailers, though, are doing their best to catch up.

Veterans have tried to put a stop to the madness by saying it’s disrespectful to start celebrating the holidays before Remembrance Day.

But sadly, the will of the retail economy seems to be more powerful than society’s collective respect for veterans.
