Businessman Brett Wilson Urges Retailers to Save Christmas for After Remembrance Day

Brett Wilson doesn’t want to see Christmas decorations until after Remebrance Day.

In Canada, most malls and shops start looking like Santa’s living room the day after Halloween, but Calgary financier Wilson believes this is disrespectful to veterans.

The former Dragons’ Den investor wants retailers to wait until November 12, the day after Remembrance Day, to slap up the red-and-green.

He’s taken to social media to push his message—although it would have been helpful to do so in October, not after everyone already has Christmas stuff set up.
