Christmas Trumps Halloween
Christmas has finally trumped Halloween. When Christmas started encroaching on Thanksgiving we all joked, “What’s next? Are they going after Halloween?” Much like the warnings in the moving “Network,” that which we’ve jokes about as a “ludicrous extreme” have now come to be truth. It was a Big Lots TV commercial. They advertised their Christmas wrapping paper deals and decorations steals. Boo, Big Lots. For shame. So, I’d just like to go on record as being the first to make the joke, “So what’s next? Christmas commercials on the 4th of July?!”
It’s all a plot to finally justify everyone’s Christmas lights procrastination – if Christmas is right around the corner again, why bother putting away the decorations? I blame Christ.
It is not Christ’s fault. His sermon on the mount did not feature any “blessed are the light-putter-uppers” or “blessed are the procrastinators” or “double blessed are the light-putter-uppers who are also procrastinators for they are the best of all.”
Second, “they” didn’t even get Jesus’ birthday right. Evidence leans more toward an October birth. Though, that being said, perhaps the Christmas commercials should be on right now – but then not during December (or November!).
It’s clearly the Holy Ghost’s fault, because he has a soft spot for Halloween.
I always thought the Ghost was full of Holes. This proves it.
Let’s make him ghost away.
Boooooo, you two.
I saw another Christmas commercial last night for Home Shopping Network. a) Commercials for HSN? b) Still not Halloween. HSN and Big Lots are off my Christmas list. And I was going to buy EVERYONE’s gift from HSN this year and by all my wrapping materials from Big Lots.
