I have to admit as a non American I can't comment on the "before thanksgiving" part.. however that does not stop me being peeved at the Christmas cr*p in the shops from October onwards along with Christmas music..

Mid to end of November I could probably deal with ok, but that's only because it would be better than it is now..

It is no wonder so many thousands around here attend the Winter Solstice as it seems almost like an antidote to the rampant commercialism that Christmas has become.

The local rag (newspaper) calls the local Winter Solstice celebration (attended by 10s of thousands) "a new urban ritual to replace traditional festivals lost in the politically correct drive to be modern, secular and non-superstitious" it is a shame they omitted the part where our traditional festivals have also been lost to "commercialism"

It is overkill. They should confine it to the month of December only.
I'm truly sick of Christmas culture.

Recently, I found out that FDR actually moved the date Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1939 when retailers started complaining that having Thanksgiving on the LAST Thursday in November wasn't leaving enough time for people to shop for Christmas. That's when it was changed to the 4th Thursday.

Big business has controlled everything in this country for a really long time. It's ALL so commercialized.

I usually make xmas crafts starting in November, so I don't mind. Puts me in the spirit.

2012 has got to be the worst year ever in the US. 10 months of political ads playing between every show ot song, and now another two months of Christmas music.

For Gawds sake MSM! Stick to the week of Christmas for the music. It becomes repititious after the first day.

Been listening to Christmas radio for the past week already.

Did think it was a little strange that we start the whole season thing in the shops a good month before Halloween, but hell I'm good to go now. Not even Christian but all the twinkly lights, carols and songs turn me into a great big soppy kid again.

Fighting the urge to watch a sloppy Christmas film as I type.

I've been sick of Christmas since the
end of September or October,when I saw the first
Christmas commercial,I believe it was
Pet Smart.Way too much greed involved in this

Makes one want to go to the mountains
and hide from all of it.

I usually make xmas crafts starting in November, so I don't mind. Puts me in the spirit.

Great idea Nightstar! I need to find something like that to get me motivated!
