Yes it is bad...it's absolutely ridiculous.

All this does is lengthen the commercialisation of this celebratory period, and pampers to those who do little but stuff themselves with chocolates, booze and watch crap on TV....The sort of people who can't be bothered to write Christmas properly but shorten it to "Xmas", or even worse call it "Crimbo".

I feel that a law should be passed to prohibit any Christmas goods advertising until at the earliest the 1st December.

I heard that some company or organization was going to stop calling it Christmas in favour of the more "politically correct" "holiday season". hmm
