Anti-Bah Humbug


I’m going to come right out and say it – If I hear one more person verbally complain/blog/make a passive aggressive comment about how Christmas is swallowing up Thanksgiving, I’m going to blow a gasket.

I’d rather see a Christmas tree all decked out and lit with 149 strands of lights on every single lawn between here and Oklahoma City than listen to one more person complain about Christmas commercials like they are the first person to think of it. Get over it… does it really bother you? I cannot imagine, not with one single ounce of my imagination, that it really does.

How is my wanting to hang my Christmas wreath on November 21st, 3 days before Thanksgiving, really going to hurt you? So what if I’m still amazingly proud of the wreath I made 10 years ago… so proud that I want to hang it a week early? I’m not sure it’s going to make my celebration of Thanksgiving any less important. Anyways, I prefer putting up some red and green… silver and gold… pine scented candles and sparkly fir branches than fake Pilgrim hats and cardboard turkeys.

One might say I’ve bought into Christmas commercialism, but if it makes me happy and feel good, why not? I have to say, I came home a bit on edge (dinner service was terrible, Target didn’t have what I was looking for and it started pouring down rain while I ran in to get cat food) and when I started playing George Winston’s December I instantly remembered where I put my good mood. A little Holiday spirit (even if a few days early) goes a long way in my world.

So quit complaining about people getting excited about Christmas now and start complaining about things that matter. Like the treatment of the the peaceful Occupy participants or how Westboro Baptist Church (vomit) is planning on picketing the funeral of the 19 year old University of Arkansas Football Player. Those seem like worthier causes than my putting up my Christmas tree in November.

Carry on.

    TRUE STORY! Complain about the things that matter instead of insipid crap! Even better, instead of wasting your time complaining and/or blogging or coming up with another witty facebook comment about the killing of Thanksgiving, write to a congressperson or an editor or make your own signs and picket or bake some cookies for the Occupiers. Time to get out from behind the screens.

  2. I have always felt this way no matter what time of year, complain about the things that matter… the things that don't, don't waste your energy on. Happy Thanksgiving Erin, I hope yours is wonderful!! 🙂
