Ugh! Well, it’s official and will be snowballing from now till the first of the year. I saw my first Christmas-themed commercial this morning. I can’t tell you who the sponsor was; I was too busy changing the channel. And a second one just ran … some kind of light that projects Christmas designs all over the front of your house so you don’t have to hang lights or other decorations.
I’d be objecting — loudly — if I thought it would do the least bit of good. But it won’t. Halloween has barely raised its head, with a few ads about costumes, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes. I’ve not seen even a mention of Thanksgiving. But now here comes Christmas.
I grouse about this every year, for all the good it does. I guess it’s just the angry old woman in me coming out again.
