But this past Thursday, I was walking home from Lake Shore Drive on Cornelia and about a block in, through one of the windows on the first floor of a three-flat, I saw a brightly colored, fully decorated Christmas tree. And I screamed...
"It's only November 6th! Can't you wait until AFTER fucking Thanksgiving?!?"
I hate - - HATE - - that Christmas is now not just a day, or a week, or even a month; it's TWO months. And it's growing.
For me, two months of one holiday - - and that's holy DAY!!! - - takes away everything special about that day.
But if you want display your Christmas tree in your house this early, that's fine. Just close your damn drapes.
