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.

Every year, people try to make Christmas "happen" earlier than it should.

Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas.

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

Like how Target did a Christmas commercial before Halloween.

And malls started putting up trees in October.

And Starbucks already has Christmas cups.

I mean, can we enjoy Thanksgiving for a second?

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

And prematurely pushing Christmas almost cheapens it.

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

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

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

But I'm not. I'm trying to defend Christmas.

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

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

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

I'll spin every Christmas jam I can find.

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

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

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

I swear, it'll be more fun this way!

OK, great. Thanks!
