Thanksgiving is weeks away. But I’m seeing Christmas everywhere. Even before the kids were out trick-0r-treating I saw hints of red and green here and there with pine tree accents.
I gotta say that Christmas is really overstepping its bounds. Santa will be appearing at the local mall starting this coming Saturday (November 8!!). The only demographic I can see directly benefiting directly from this trend are the chubby guys with white beards.
It used to be they’d have steady Santa-related employment for a few weeks in December. Now it’s beginning to look like they’ll have jobs for a few months each year. And by the time I join the ranks of chubby and gray, I might even have full time employment!
That’s where we’re headed: it’s ALWAYS Christmas.
