Why You Should Hold Off On Christmas Until After Thanksgiving

To everything there is a season. A time to trick or treat, a time to give thanks, a time for Christmas.

1. Every year, people try to make Christmas “happen” earlier than it should.

2. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas.

3. But I hate it being forced on me before we’re finished with other holidays.

4. Like how Target did a Christmas commercial before Halloween.

5. And malls started putting up trees in October.

6. And Starbucks already has Christmas cups.

7. I mean, can we enjoy Thanksgiving for a second?

8. It’s a great holiday, but it’s always overshadowed by Christmas.

9. And prematurely pushing Christmas almost cheapens it.

10. So I get upset when I see Christmas displays at stores in November.

11. And I’m sad when people start playing Christmas music early.

12. People think I’m a Scrooge, angrily waging war on Christmas.

13. But I’m not. I’m trying to defend Christmas.

14. Too much of a good thing can be bad, and too much Christmas can be exhausting.

15. I swear, the day after Thanksgiving, I’ll be ready for the Christmas spirit.

16. I’ll run to the store and buy all your things.

17. I’ll spin every Christmas jam I can find.

18. In fact, I’ll probably be more gung-ho about Christmas than you will.

19. But until then, can we just hold off on Christmas?

20. Just until the end of the month. Put it away. It’s all I’m asking.

21. I swear, it’ll be more fun this way!

22. OK, great. Thanks!
