Christmas, go away you’re here two months early


Okay, I understand Christmas starting the first day of November. You’ve got Halloween out of the way and you’re looking for another reasons to decorate your apartment once the scary skeletons go back in the closet. I mean while you’re in the storage unit why not grab the lights and fake tree?

But the start of October? With IKEA already pimping the Christmas stuff, and egg nog already on store shelves [mbv] it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and the fact that it’s not even midway through October is freaking me out. We should be trying to convince ourselves that we’re in the midst of an Indian Summer, not trying to down our sorrows out with images of chubby little cherubs praising Saint Nick.

So here’s the deal, if the city can’t get its act together and end this damn strike [cbc], then the very least they could do is pass a law banning Christmas at least until December. I don’t care if people want to give shopping a shot in the arm, we need at least a week between the end of summer and the start of Christmas and these days we’re losing that precious time.

Also anyone who has their Christmas lights up before November 1st, I’m going to find you and kick your plastic reindeer.

    This excites me! I love Christmas any time. I must pay a visit to Ikea very soon. Thanks, Jeffrey.

    Yeah! God damn legislators, get off your lazy asses! There are bans to enact! We can’t let business owners run WILD with the freedom to operate their business how they see fit. Never mind the free market, never mind that they wouldn’t ‘pimp’ Christmas unless it was profitable, which means that the general public is in favour of it! Let’s all vandalize people who start celebrating before we tell them its ok. That’ll be funny…

    Child labour is profitable too, and yet we are obviously against it. I think exploiting Christmas as early as October 1st should have some sort of legistlation.

    I mean it’s not like city council is actually going to do any real work until the strike is over other than posturing. Why can’t they get off their ass and ban something.
