[sarcasm]Merry Christmas everyone! [/sarcasm]
I know I'm a bit late seeing as how today is November 18th, but I just couldn't bring myself to say it any earlier. It seems that every year people (the retail world) wants to celebrate earlier every year. Today at work, I had a customer wish me a merry christmas.
Silly me, I thought Thanksgiving was still coming up, what the hell happened to my calendar? Do people still celebrate Thanksgiving anymore, or is it just Christmas Part1? Frankly it'sjsut disgusting. I understand that this is the biggest retail season of the year, and alot of people are banking on it being a busy commercial season, but is it necessary to ram it down our throats in the middle of November? I may be old fashioned here (and I'm only 21) but I don't put up ANYTHING until at least the 15th of December. I don't care if you're Santa Claus, I ain't doing squat until that calendar says 15.
This year, I saw Christmas commercials on Halloween!
I thought to myself, "This is the reason I don't like the holidays at all." It's one thing to advertise and promote, it's another thing to force all this holiday cheeer and commercialism down our gullets.
