I like Christmas, but I wish there was a law that stated it wasn't allowed to start until two days after Thanksgiving.

I'll support that, but the stuff has to be up through January 6. No pulling all the crap down on the evening of the 25th.

/The 12 days of Christmas come after, not before.

Christmas is meh for me. I'm not religious, so it really represents 2 weeks off (out of my 7 weeks I get), much food and drinking, spending time with my wife's family, and road trips.

Yes! I was in Menards in early October and there was more Christmas crap than Halloween decorations. And last September, while waiting to fill a prescription, a Walgreen's employee was putting up decorations. I haven't shopped at either place since.

Listen, I know that it's the largest grossing time of the year for retail, but it really irritates those of us that don't celebrate. I have no problem giving you folks a month for your Jesus BS, but a half of a year is just too goddamn much.

All right! Time for the annual consumer frenzy, differentiated from the normal consumer frenzy that we celebrate every single day. This is all we are, everything we represent--Consumers. Be proud.

Ever since put the kabash on buying gifts for family members (except granddaughters both under eighteen) 5 years ago, I have enjoyed complete stress free Christmases. Should be like Easter, mainly for the kids (gift wise).

/Not a scrooge, can still have Yuletide spirit without going in debt.

Last week I went to the grocery ... and they were playing christmas songs over the PA, between sale announcements. Geez, thansgiving is 3 weeks away. I don't like the early start of christmas, but I really feel bad for the poor bastards that work there and have to listen to that crappy muzak for 7 or 8 weeks.
 
2012-11-11 01:19:59 PM  
I get a little annoyed at Christmas decorations that are up now. Wait til after Thanksgiving, folks.

What really bothers me is when someone says "Merry Christmas" on December 5th or something. It's 20 days away! It's not Christmas.

If you've got kids, man up, Nancy, and negotiate time limits that give her the same punishment you both equal time with your folks.

No kids? Be very, very careful with the math in your cost/benefit analysis.

The Wal-mart here started selling Christmas trees in late September, and Christmas food/candy the day after Halloween. Now that the election is over we can get straight to business on the war on christmas! Fail.

At least they didn't butcher a perfectly good tree.
 
2012-11-11 02:00:19 PM  
A few years back I saw Christmas tree ornament bulbs that looked like pumpkins. Cuz, ya know, those two holidays are totally compatible.

I suppose they are compatible to modern Americans, since they've both been reduced to a marketing campaign to get people to buy a bunch of shiat.

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. For lo! prices are slashed in every department! Go forth, now, unto Walmart and buy, buy, buy!"

because it was largely ignored and nothing at all like the big display of commercialism that it is now.

Aside from the commercialism, Catholics have always celebrated Christmas. The founders were either no fun allowed puritans who did celebrate it or Diests, the late 18th century version of the edgy Internet atheist.

Not really. It's just that some people might enjoy the Christmas season, and lots of FARK types just can't stand that notion.
