This Garden Ridge Christmas Display Is Obscenely Unseasonal

We thought Hobby Lobby’s August Christmas trees might be the height of this season’s Christmas Creep, but wow were we wrong. Garden Ridge is striving to be a one-stop panacea for all your summer Christmas needs. They’re already stocking Christmas trees, ornaments, lights, snowy yard inflatables, and what looks like a snow toboggan complete with Tigger, Winnie The Pooh, and everybody’s favorite Christmas downer, Eeyore!

Tipster Rex spotted the summer yuletide display in Oklahoma City.

About 10 days ago we were buying some crap at Garden Ridge. Seasonally correct crap, stuff for summer use. The place is being set up for full on Christmas sales. Notice the Christmas trees, yard inflatables and a whole collection of ornaments and toys.

You should have seen the staff they had decorating trees and stocking shelves.

It’s completely stupid right?!

It’s not completely stupid. That yard inflatable is the perfect place to escape the 94 degree scorcher expected to grace Oklahoma today.
