Wow, I grew up in that hellhole.

I hope the fact that it's barely Halloween doesn't ruin the whole thing for him. That would be pretty sad.

Wondering if the local shul and/or mosque got in on the action.

Aw. That's sweet. I want a Hallowmas. Christween? Whatever. Good on them.

Did the town provide new shoes?

Aw man, reading that brought tears to me eyes. I love Ohio!!

Isn't there a Vonnegut story where the protaganist finds the secret to long life being based in some southern town, but everyone who gets the 'cure' ends up mentally diminshed? Maybe this town is the opposite.

Too much dust in that town.

If the town wasn't in Ohio I would move there out of spite. Unfortunately, my hatred of Christmas cannot compete with my hatred of Ohio. Win-win.

Depressing story is still depressing.

Where ya living now?

I go to Port Clinton every year - mainly as a jumping-off point to go to the islands, but the town itself ain't bad.  Not much of a fan of Christmas anymore.  Still, good on them.

Best reason? It's very close to Cedar Pointe Amusement Park in Sandusky OH, every day is like Christmas there!

Before reading article:
Da hell? And I thought it was premature for commercials for Christmas to start flying up before thanksgiving

After reading article:
*Sniff* *Sniff* Faith in humanity has been restored.... a little

/Still would hate to live in Ohio

It's ok, Jack Skellington owes Santa one.

I went to a "Walleye Drop" there one New Year's Eve. Sadly, not a euphemism

/lowered a gigantic plastic walleye via crane for countdown to the New Year

Or so they say.

Maybe the rebellion hasn't started their yearly tradition yet

Just wanted to stop by to say fark you  subby for bringing up Christmas before Halloween is over. The month of October should be restricted to spooky Halloween stuff only. Christmas can have every day after Thanksgiving, and that's more than plenty.

After driving out the British they changed the name to Cedar Point.  But, yeah, Cedar Point is a good time!
