An open letter to all points of consumerism

Dear Stores of Chicago;

‘I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus’? Really? Already?

I realize that Christmas is just a short 32 days away, but Thanksgiving is only 1 day away. How do you think that makes Thanksgiving feel? Sure, Thankgiving doesn’t have the chipper soundtrack that makes people just want to SHOP SHOP SHOP like Christmas does, but do you really have to flaunt it right in Thanksgiving’s face like that? You couldn’t wait just 2 days to start the Christmas mayhem? It’s bad enough that Thanksgiving already knows that most people look forward to the day after it more than the actual day of giving thanks.

Some of us really like Thanksgiving. The turkey, the overeating, the pie, the turkey. Did I mention the turkey? Even more of us don’t want to start stressing about Christmas this early.

Please please please, for the love of Turkey, refrain from all the Christmas songs until Black Friday. For Thanksgiving’s sake.

    All these x-mas song pushers trying to fake shoppers into spending early on gifts have made me HATE X-mas songs.
