Christmas right after Halloween.
There are also those outliers who start celebrating Christmas at the beginning of October, but we aren’t going to talk too much about them because they belong in a psychiatric hospital.
Halloween night passed and the next day people had up Christmas lights, and twinkling reindeer in their yards. There wasn’t even any snow on the ground yet people!
Want to listen to Christmas music? Do it.
Want to plan for presents? Be my guest.
But for Pete’s sake, please do not put Santa out on your still green lawn alongside your Christmas lights and Nativity scene the first week in November!
It appears Halloween is officially the start of the Christmas holiday season. And, of course, for the capitalists out there, having one continuous three-month shopping season isn’t such a bad thing (because, let’s face it, it really started at the beginning of October, as I know I was buying Halloween candy and running into those fake reindeer in the same rows at Target).
Black Friday is now the entire month of November for Amazon.
But because everyone automatically jumps into Christmas after Halloween, Thanksgiving is completely disregarded.
Thanksgiving means food. Lots of food! I don’t understand why everyone just pushes Thanksgiving into the sidelines.
I happen to really enjoy Thanksgiving, and everyone who decides to ignore Thanksgiving can just go drown in their Christmas music.
Nobody needs that negativity in their life.
