Early Bird Christmas

Amelia Lock, Staff Writer

Let’s be real, we all love the Christmas season. Everyone has a festive spirit that just can’t be beaten. Smells of cinnamon, peppermint, and gingerbread hang in the air. Plus, on top of all this, you get presents and a break from school.

However, no matter how much we love Christmas, the majority of us don’t want to celebrate it until after all the other holidays. You cannot just skip Halloween and Thanksgiving and go straight to Christmas.

The majority of the population does not want to hear Jingle bells being belted in the hallways on November 5th.  Nor do we want to see giant Rudolph blow-ups in our neighborhoods until an appropriate Christmas celebration time.

I know that some people can’t help themselves, but if you are one of them, please try to keep it away from others because Christmas over-excitement syndrome can be contagious and doctors are seeing more and more cases each year.

People who can’t stand early Christmas enthusiasm are not being humbugs because to be one it would have to be Christmas time, and they just don’t want the other holidays to feel left out. It doesn’t mean they hate Christmas or like it any less, they just aren’t so obsessive about it.

So to all who are reading this, please attempt to refrain from Christmas celebration and decoration until December 1st.
