Christmas: Are they shoving it down our throats too early?

    According to Google's Santa Tracker, the fat guy and his little elf friends were just in my town about six minutes ago:


    Seems like his timing was about the same this year as it was last year (and the year before that he apparently arrived a few minutes after midnight).

    I notice this year, instead of cutting the traditional A CHRISTMAS STORY marathon short for a marathon of THE BIG DANG THEORY, TBS is cutting it short for a mini-marathon of AMERICAN DAD! and FAMILY GUY . . . what do either of those shows have to do with Christmas?

    Well, this year's theme apparently was DODGEBALL: I got three t-shirts (two Average Joe's - one black and one yellow, and a Globo Gym), and Vinyl Idolz of Peter LaFleur and White Goodman.

    As silly as it sounds, one thing that made me smile today was finally getting to wear my new Christmas sweater for the first time.

    I HATE it when people start doin that. Of course, "I Hate Christmas" in general, like Oscar, but I HATE it when radio stations start playin Christmas music like the day after Hallloween

    Isn't it ironic how everybody is quick to start pushing Christmas music as soon as Thanksgiving is over, but the very day after Christmas - when there's still almost an entire week of December left - they yank it off? Even MC.

    All of the local stations have already done it.

    I was at Walmart the other day (thankfully we hardly ever go there, because I really don't like it there), and they already have an aisle of Christmas stuff up. And it's not even Halloween yet!!

    Well, I think the keyword there is Walmart.

    Well for me its about the only place where I can at least buy certain things I need and a few things I want but yep they are already getting Trees, ornaments and lights up. I really think we need to stop celebrating Christmas and get back to celebrating Halloween and Thanksgiving like it needs to be done.

    I will have to say. I can't wait to see those Rankin Bass TV Specials airing on AMC cause they will at least talk about the specials and give some inside to them. That's what I miss about how The Wonderful World of Disney used to do with their intros and outros during the late 80's and early 90's. I miss that. But yeah to much of a good thing makes it worse down the line. Poor Halloween and Thanksgiving. Are they EVER going to be able to OUT do Christmas?

    I don't think it's even legit at all, so I'm just going to wait until the actual schedule comes out.
