"First of all, you're making me look bad," I said. "Second, have you seen a calender? There's still a week left in November."
It's a fact. December starts on Saturday. And while I know Thanksgiving weekend is traditionally when many people - myself included - decorate, it just came too early for me to get right into the Christmas spirit. Thanksgiving fell on the earliest possible date it could - the 22nd. That means we have an extra week to look at your annoyingly festive Christmas lights because you decided to show off and get it done already. What a treat for all of us.
|This hasn't even happened yet.|
I congratulate you, friends and neighbors, for being ahead of the curve. For getting it done early. For being the first on the block to make your yuletide gay. We haven't even digested our turkey and you're already making us nauseous with Christmas lights. Well done.
Last year, I wrote FIVE rants of Christmas. So this post picks up where I left off. The first one, about children asking for iPads for Christmas, is here. The next three, where I detail my issues with some classic Christmas shows and songs, are here. And the fifth one, which also involves Christmas lights, is here.
