Thanksgiving is passed, as is Black Friday and Cyber Monday. So, you can decorate without bad luck or opprobrium from right-thinking people. Of course, the nature of that decorating is in flux. 😛
So, yesterday – that’d be November 4th – I went shopping. And what did I find? Christmas stuff… all over the place – Christmas-themed product packaging, Christmas-themed products themselves, and whole Christmas decorations and paraphernalia displays. On November 4th!
When the Christmas Creep is this aggressive, I’m forced to pull out the Halloween Calendar in response. 😉 If the cultists of the ice-bound Draugr from the North can’t wait – in America – until at least the day after Thanksgiving, we’re going to have to combat their advance. And hey! I’d strongly prefer they be forced to wait until Advent – that’d be Sunday, December 3rd this year – to trot out the Christmas stuff, but I’m not a fanatic and am quite willing to compromise to the old tradition of the day after Thanksgiving.
