Today is the 1st of November and people are already claiming "IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME!" I don't think that's true it all, so I posted on Facebook to see if other people felt the same way.


Only one day removed from Halloween and I'm seeing ELF memes and people planning Christmas lists. I can't handle it. I think the Christmas season begins the day after Thanksgiving. That's when I put up my tree. Anyway, here is what some of you had to say!

Geri agrees with my start date. And she's definitely right about stores getting Christmas stuff out sooner and sooner. About a decade ago, I worked at a craft store with a rhyming name that started getting shipments of Christmas trees in May. That's not OK!

Brittany starts a little bit sooner than Geri and starts doing the Christmas thing on Thanksgiving night. I commend Brittany for being able to move after all the Thanksgiving food that night, yet alone putting up decorations!

Sean wants to crack down on Christmas even more. He does make a solid point though: If Halloween only gets one month, why should Christmas get longer? I like the way you think!
