Is It Too Early to Get into the Christmas Spirit?

Some people think that it’s an affront to the institution of Christmas (and overall holidays) to begin getting into the season’s spirit before Thanksgiving, but c’mon. I’ve got a nutcracker and I’m not afraid to use it.

Do you get excited about the upcoming holidays? Christmas, Advent, Saint Nicholas’ Day, Bodhi Day, Saint Lucy’s Day, Winter Solstice, Soyal, Yalda, Hanukkah, Mo-draniht, Saturnalia, Pancha Ganapati, Christmas Eve, Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, Yule, Anastasia of Sirmium Feast Day, Malkh, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, Saint Stephen’s Day, Saint John the Evangelist’s Day, Holy Innocents’ Day, Saint Sylvester’s Day, Watch Night, New Year’s Eve, and Hogmanay… oh, and Festivus (for the rest of us!) will soon be upon us. Isn’t it a good idea to be prepared?

  1. I am a firm believer that all things Christmas shouldn’t start until after Thanksgiving. Around here stores and radio stations are already playing Christmas music and it drives me crazy. Stop trying to rush the holidays!

  2. I believe all things seasonal for December shouldn’t start until after Thanksgiving too. However, please remember the Jewish geekettes like yours truly who will be celebrating from December 9-16 along with all the other holidays including Festivus. If the celebration involves food, happy people and presents, I’m there!
