    When did Novemember 1st signal to everybody to put up their Christmas decorations and for the stores to start advertise it. Holy Christ! Leave Thanksgiving by itself and stop making it "Christmas part 1".

    I was at a Kohl's yesterday, and they were mixing in holiday music with regular stuff. Made me cringe.

    I don't mind it so much after November 15th, but I just need a couple of weeks to enjoy the crisp air of fall without having to start thinking about all the stress of Christmas

    You hit it right on! Thanksgiving is the best. Just food and drink. That's all. Christmas isn't an autumn holiday

    Department stores have had their Christmas stuff up since October's first week, the malls have had all their big decoration up since around the middle of October. Here in Pennsylvania they started airing this fucking 3 decades old Christmas Lottery commercial this week. You didn't use to see it till December.
