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!
