    Christmas In October???

    First, let me assure you, I love Christmas. I'm no Scrooge. But I like Thanksgiving, too. I hate it how everything gets decorated and everything for Christmas before Thanksgiving; it's almost like everyone forgets that Thanksgiving is a holiday too! People put their trees and...

    Christmas When I Was a Kid

    Before Halloween, Even!

    You know how you LOVED your house when you first moved in but now it's old news? You know how you used to LOVE that song but now you've heard it so much that you're looking for something new 'cause you're bored? That's what you're doing to Christmas, America! Stop it already!
