First it killed Thanksgiving, completely absorbing it into it's commercial frenzy. Now it's taken Halloween. Today, October 3rd, 2007, I saw my first "things you can buy for Christmas" on the morning news, and earlier this week I was at Home Depot and saw the Christmas tress and decorations out. I hate the ever burgeoning Christmas Season. Despise it. I like Christmas day, when the family gets together and eats a lot. I've even gotten to a point in my life where I can appreciate the religious aspects of Christmas. I cannot stand what the commercial enterprises in this country have turned this season into, and the other holidays they have sacrificed for profit.
May Halloween and Thanksgiving Rest In Peace.
