"Please save the Christmas stuff for December"

Short answer: NOPE! 🎄🎁🎅

Long answer: Even if I wanted to wait until the start of the Christmas season...the Christmas season does not start on December 1st. It starts the day after Thanksgiving.

It's only a few days' difference, but it bothers me. Asking me to wait until after Thanksgiving seems reasonable to me (even if I probably won't do it), but asking me to wait until December 1st just strikes me as someone trying to ruin my fun.

    The Christmas season is December 25th-January 6th. :|
  • how about not doing Christmas stuff at all?
  • β€œAnd above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl
    That would mean no visit from Anonus, which is no good 👎👎👎
  • can't Anonus come visit another time

    I was going to say this, but, well.

    He does, but the Christmas visits are magical

    The first time I ever traveled by airplane was to visit Anonus for Christmas

    It was amazing

    I bought him the 101 Dalmatians books even!

    Let's face it, Christmas season starts as soon as Trick Or Treat is over.

    Or, for the grown ups, as soon as the Halloween party hangover clears up.
  • Eh, I don't mind like... a bit of Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving, Like merchandise in stores is good, and a Christmas song or Christmas movie here and there, and decorations going up.

    What bothers me is when it's like... all Christmas all the time everywhere right after Halloween. (Like Hallmark Channel showing nonstop made for TV Christmas movies starting at the end of October and thus not showing Golden Girls reruns in the morning. Or when the radio station I listen to starts in on nonstop Christmas music earlier than I'd like instead of like... easing into it and playing a couple Christmas songs per music block then switching to all Christmas on Black Friday.)

    Just don't be a Linda Belcher and put up a real Christmas tree the day after Halloween.

    Hmm. If the Christmas season is December 25th-January 5th (why did i say 6th up there, the 6th is epiphany), and Advent starts on the 4th Sunday before Christmas, clearly the commercial leadup should be called Decoration season.

    I think I saw this on the guide on TVLand?

    Really, given the time we actually celebrate the Christmas Season, it's more like we're celebrating the third trimester of Mary's pregnancy than Jesus's birth.
  • something something when does life begin something something abortion something something
  • also let's just go back to celebrating yuletide and put jesus's birth on another day because he wasn't actually born on december 25 anyway
  • what if instead of calling it a generic name "holiday" which is what the "keep christ in christmas" folks usually complain about
    instead, just call it yuletide

    ORIGINALISM, BABY
