Goodbye summer, it’s been a blast.
August 31 is officially the last day of summer, according to meteorologists, which of course means that winter is coming.
While there are still a few weeks until the September 22 equinox, here are a few reasons why the summer fun is already over.
There are just 16 weekends left until Christmas Day arrives and there’s even an official festive Facebook group already counting down the days.

If you can’t wait until then, you can head to Harrods or Selfridges in Oxford Street where it is already Christmas.
Some stores already have their Christmas decorations on display, so there is no excuse for not getting all your present shopping done (extremely) early.
