I received a catalog from Mrs. Fields in the mail last week and it looks like they dropped Christmas because they want to focus on large business orders that you can give out to clients, hence no mention of any specific holiday.

So? They could accomplish that by having "generic" in addition to, rather than instead of, Christmas items

Or they could fix it by having another catalog later with all the Christmas stuff, which apparently was the plan all along, hence the thing indicating Christmas stuff will start being available on Nov 1. I remember when selling Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving was one of the great travesties of retail, now apparently selling non-Christmas stuff in early October is evil. Protesting Christians really need to make up their mind, they’re putting stores in a no win situation, and once you convince the retail sector they can’t make you happy they lose any reason to try.
