  • What happen to Thanksgiving?

    Mid August and you walk into Walmart and find a aisle full of Christmas stuff. What happen to Halloween, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Week? Many say," there is just no song for them," and ," the businesses need the money." Thanks giving is the time of year where people celebrate an important event in history shouldn't it get some recognition.

  • God bless F'n Capitalism

    It's because of that damn all mighty dollar that they truly believe they need to start the Christmas season as soon as they can! It's bloody ridiculous! Have some sense of morals! Christmas does not start until December 1st.

    Shame on stores who take advantage of people so early. Ugh

  • Christmas is seen as a way to make money

    It's sad and stupid, but Christmas is supposed to be a religious holiday to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It's supposed to be a time with family, but since there is gift giving gifts involved, stores get involved and shove their products in your face convincing you the best way to love your family is to buy them a bunch of stuff. It's horrible

  • Sometimes Its Too Much

    You see most of the time people go right from Halloween to Christmas. But what about Thanksgiving or Veterans Day, why don't we spend time giving thanks to not only the food we have on our table or the roof we have over our head but also to the people who fought for OUR freedom. They gave up their time, risked their life, left their family for US. So instead of going right from Halloween to Christmas enjoy whats in between.

  • The holiday season starts WAY TOO EARLY

    When I was a kid in the 70's and 80's you never saw a hint of Christmas till at or around Thanksgiving. Now it starts in July JULY WTF is wrong with people. A once special time has been ruined. Being that my bday is 2 weeks before Christmas I really loved it and could not wait till Nov came. Now I hate it my bday is not the same it just sucks all together!!!!

  • Hell on earth

    It definitely takes the joy out of the Halloween. It's not my favorite holiday but it is a weird feeling buying a zombie costume right next to some candy canes and Christmas lights. They're trying to take the joy and spirit out of everyone. We will soon be emotionless robots only buying just to buy. Game over.

  • Wait your turn, Christmas!

    Isn't a month long enough for Christmas? Why does it need to hijack November and October? Why can't Thanksgiving and Halloween have those months to themselves? Christmas has gotten so big that by the time it actually rolls around, I'm tired of it and so ready for it to end.

  • Christmas has become a neurosis

    Where I grew up Christmas trees didn't go up until around mid December. Now they're going up in November or even earlier. Just this year the town I live in put up their telephone pole Christmas lights in October before Halloween; they used to wait until Thanksgiving. Too many people are becoming infused with the commercial spirit and need the constant stimulus of holiday trappings in order to provide excitement for their otherwise dull lives.

  • Christmas be a Creepin'

    Every year, we are always slammed on TV, radio, internet, etc with Christmas commercials, earlier and earlier every year. If I remember correctly, last year or the year before I remember seeing Xmas commercials as early as the end of September. It is ridiculous.
    What's even more ridiculous is Black Friday, that one day every year after Thanksgiving where a lot of people go nuts over so called "good deals" when good deals can be found a lot of places throughout the year. During black Friday, people camp out in front of stores as early as 2am or earlier in the morning, wanting to be the first one in the store, just to get that good deal on *insert product here*.
    The point is people get hurt on black Friday, trying to get to these objects. It is unneeded and selfish, just to rake in some extra dough. What's worse is black Friday now creeps into Thanksgiving under the guise of "Gray Thursday". Like really? As if one day of hellish shopping ain't bad enough? You have to take thanksgiving too? Thanksgiving is a time for good food and family and being thankful for what we have, gray Thursday takes that away when stores are opening at 5pm or whatever thanksgiving night. It's stupid, needs to stop. Let each holiday have their time.
    October=Fall/Halloween
    November=Thanksgiving
    And save Christmas for its month, December.

    If you want to get holiday shopping done early, that's cool. But we don't need the obnoxious, sickening sweet, fake family Christmas commercials shoving it down our throats. And play the Christmas music on the radio in Defember. Not October. Just saying.

  • If Jack Skellington can do it, so can you!

    It is possible to enjoy more than one holiday at once. Starting early keeps you more organized so you don't feel so rushed in December and can actually enjoy the holiday approaching. Some families meet at Thanksgiving for Christmas because they'll see other family at Christmas. It is especially true if they're in different states. It's hard to get Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving if the stores aren't armed. You can find the best deals for gifts when you have the most time...Be on the lookout year round. Some gifts when customized or ordered from other countries take 6+ weeks to arrive.

  • Stores want money

    Stores are only putting up christmas decors in October because they want you to think about the holiday and to get you to start purchasing things. They want to profit from their decor. Christmas shouldn't be about money or strategies, it should be about family and spending time together. It may seem they are in the spirit of Christmas but they are in the spirit of your money!

  • Christmas is coming :)

    Christmas is a holiday that celebrates cheer, family, and being together in a day of celebration. The feeling of Christmas cheer brightens peoples day, and makes people all around happier. Also, most people take down their Christmas decorations very shortly after Christmas, so why not get the most time to enjoy them? Driving down a street at night and seeing the twinkling lights hung up on trees and roofs is a wonderful sight, and it is a sight that makes people happy, and gets them excited. Thinking of Christmas people start counting down the days until they get a break from work or school, it is a time of excitment that only comes around once a year, so why not make the most of it?

  • Christmas is never to early

    Lets start with christmas lights. They are the coolest during christmas you look out the window and find them all and not just lights theres santa. And during thanksgiving you never think of christmas. It gets us in the mood for christmas. They may say its skipping thanksgiving but theres no thanksgiving music so they listen to christmas!!!!!!!!

  • No and how could it.

    Christmas is a choice. You can celebrate how and when you want. I don't think Christmas start too early because I am probably one of the few who actually believe that Christmas should last year. As early as stores put out holiday items people start buying them. Don't let me start on kids.

  • It's Up To You!

    Christmas starts for each individual when THEY decide they want it to start. Yes, I do think stores put out Holiday items [ALL HOLIDAYS] far too early but if people didn't buy them that early there would be no need to put them out that early. If you don't want to start decorating until a set date then don't, no one is forcing you to.

  • No, Christmas starts whenever you want it to start.

    No one can force you to start getting ready for Christmas. It starts in your life and your home when you wish for it to start. For most people, Black Friday is the kick-off to the Christmas season, for others, it's December first. Whatever your preference, you can start and stop, when you want to.

  • No, the start of Christmas is driven by what people demand

    How can Christmas start too early if people want it to start early? When the Christmas season starts is up to each individual. You can buy Christmas items year-round...you just have to look for them. I think this question stems from this year's black Friday sales starting on Thursday. But if people did not attend those sales, they wouldn't be pushed back, now would they? Retailers are simply responding to consumer demand. Each person has the ability to control when his or her own celebration begins. So stores put up Christmas lights in October...so what? How is that affecting you in any way?
