Long gone (like since 2001) are the days - at least in my town here on the west coast and hometown back over on the eastern seaboard - where around
this time of the month, folks would just be starting their nightly door to door carolling door to door, candles in hand.
Instead nowadays apparently it's instead common to throw workplace Christmas parties at the bare dawn of the month to accomodate all those who cash in
on their 2-4+ weeks of vacation the rest of the month till next year.. almost definitely not in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria though!
Following the shooting deaths of over a dozen Americans at an office Christmas party on Dec 2 allegedly by a Muslim-American 'Bonnie & Clyde' also
killed that Christmas party day, and the Paris attacks last month on Friday the 13th, folks have apparently likewise replaced the carolling with
attacks on random civilian Muslims; per @1:11 even worse than following the 9/11 attacks.

Justn one trip to the mall, or even your local Walgreens will prove that Christmas has been in force since the day after Halloween. No one has stolen
Christmas. Not even the Grinch, every year he tries and fails.
