The Early Christmas Pushers

Lay away, or GO AWAY!

These are the folks who plot their Christmas advertising and display campaigns as soon as winter hits THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE. It has reached the point where July 4th features exploding elves and aerial displays named for Dancer and Blitzen. The Labor Day weekend clogs highways not only with late summer travelers, but also with trucks bringing in the new crop of “live” trees ready to drop their needles as soon as you attach your dangerously old strings of lights. The Pumpkins of Halloween mix with offers to give out Christmas candy canes to the trick-or-treat kids. Before the Thanksgiving turkey is done, the Radio City Rockettes traveling troupe is touring the nation with a show that features a nativity scene – conjuring images of scantily clad women kicking the crap out of the baby Jesus. All that said, the REAL jerks are the people who constantly bitch about the early Christmas pushers at the same time they are first in line to trample anyone who gets in their way as they rush the stores participating in Black Friday Christmas sales. My, oh my, what would Good King Wenceslaus say?
