It's bad enough that Christmas presents, themes, television commercials, and special discounts start appearing immediately after Halloween. Now, before November is even done with, there is continuous Christmas music on the radio and decorated homes in the streets (some with tacky blinking lights and giant snow globes).
Where I come from, the Christmas season began on December 1. That was the first day on the traditional “advent calendar” (although advent itself apparently varies in time). It seems unbelievably crass to start Christmas so early. I even told my wife that I would be extremely displeased if the house decorations went up before the beginning of December, despite the “good weather for hanging decorations” that we were having.
