Christmas Comes Very Early For UK Store
These days most of us are used to the holiday creep, when stores start putting out Christmas decorations and items well before Thanksgiving, but it seems one store in the UK has taken that holiday creep to a new extreme.
The UK store Selfridge’s, which has been around since 1909, has already launched its Christmas Shop, with more than 500 products on display, and another 3,800 expected in the store on September 4th. This year’s theme is music-based, “Selfridges Rocks Christmas,” and will feature items like David Bowie-shaped ornaments for the trees, and even an Elvis Presley nutcracker.
While it may be in the high 80s in England right now, the store insists launching the shop 145 days before Xmas is their way of catering to their customers’ demands, although not everyone agrees. Shopper Diane Herbert noted, “At our age, we think life goes too quick without bringing Christmas forward.”

Sleeping too much could lead to dying young: We all know that getting enough sleep is important for our health, but a new study suggests that too much sleep may actually be detrimental to it. A study out of the UK argues that people who sleep more than eight hours could get a “serious sleep disorder” that disrupts breathing, leading to an early death. In fact, the study suggests that those who sleep too much increase their risk of heart disease by 44%. Source: The Sun
Starbucks Started A Group For People Who Love Fall
While some people are happily soaking up every last ray of summer sunshine they can, there are others out there doing their best to patiently wait for August to end so they can get to their favorite season: fall. And if you’re one of those people who loves the -ber months best, you’ll be happy to hear Starbucks has created a special group for fall enthusiasts: the "Leaf Rakers Society."
So, what’s this society all about? It’s a Facebook group about all things fall-related for those obsessed with the season. Starbucks recently tweeted about it with an adorable autumnally-themed animated video and asked, “It’s never too early to celebrate fall, right? If yes, go here,” with a link to the group so you can request to join.
On the fence about whether or not this society is for you? According to Starbucks, “This is a safe place for a) pumpkins b) year-round scarf wearers c) those who would rather work on their Halloween costume than their tan d) members of the Great Pumpkin watch 2017 Facebook group.” And they don’t allow “hatin’ on fall,” so no Pumpkin Spice Latte-bashing here.
Clearly, this group isn’t for everyone. If you’d rather be sipping rosé on a sunny beach somewhere, maybe you’re not Leaf Raker Society material. But if you’re all about pumpkin scones, apple cider, and checking out the natural beauty of the leaves changing color, the Starbucks mermaid welcomes you to the group.
Do You Always Look on The Bright Side? Might Not Be A Good Thing
You know the saying – always look on the bright side of life. Well, don’t. It turns out it might not be the best advice after all and could actually be bad for your health, experts warn. Feeling stressed can help people cope better with bad news, scientists have discovered. The findings add to increasing evidence that pressure is sometimes a good thing and sheds fresh light on mental health problems like depression. Most people have a tendency to dismiss bad tidings and instead are over-optimistic. But some people, such as those with depression, focus more on negative information which can actually help them process bad news better. The new findings, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, showed that being able to switch from looking on the bright side to focusing on negatives can be a healthy, adaptive response to change.
