What publications are carrying these advertisements for Thomas Kinkade Christmas items?!? Are these in newspapers or magazines?

He said something like "Geez, it feels like they're saying 'Happy 4th of July kids, now get back to school!'"

But I was like "Hooray!" Because after "Back to School" ends, that's when the Christmas stuff starts to arrive at Walmart!

I got the Dreambook back in the spring. My membership ornaments came in the mail last week! At Bed Bath & Beyond I saw the fall & Christmas clearance & smiled.

I'd probably also say September when the children return to school after the summer holidays - that's the official countdown

Unfortunately we don't really see any of the ornament catalogues in the UK - so I miss out on that experience. Nearer xmas A few jewellery shops do have a select few available to but but not until November time.

Christmas in July on the shopping channels is also a good early reminder!
