WORLD WIDE- In a move to combat shoppers' complaints of stores selling Christmas related products in October and November, the heads of the major shopping centre chains have petitioned the governments of developed nations to change the holiday to November 25th.
The Union for Shopping All the Time- or USATT- Have forwarded on their petition to 42 nations, claiming that this new proposal does have its benefits.
Frank Harris, CEO of Gifts R Us, heads the petition.
"As CEO of Gifts R Us, I get increasingly frustrated over the amount of complaints I get at this time of year for selling seasonal products." he said.
"What are we meant to do between Halloween and Christmas? Sell nothing? Ha!"
Company director of Half Price Goods incorporated, David Miller, assures that there will be no adverse shock to the average consumer.
"It's only a month early" he said "no one will be able to tell the difference...except perhaps Santa. Perhaps we should tell him.'
Out of the 42 nations who received the letter of complaint, only Madagascar and the small island nation of YeBobaBon agreed to change the date.
