The tree, Christmas shopping, watching A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation, Christmas tunes...I'm just as festive as Clark W. Griswold but can we wait until Thanksgiving? Or at least the week leading up? I feel like even less than 10 years ago, that was the deal. Seems that every year the stores have decorations up a week or so earlier. Holiday commercials and music seem to arrive earlier too.

"It's trick or treat, then Merry Christmas!" Mr. Senior from SNL agrees!
