Thanksgiving came first!
Some of you may have heard about the buzz in the blogsphere, started by Jim Suldog last year, I heard it from Michelle Hickman at the Surly Writer.
The issue is this: stores who put up their Christmas decorations before thanksgiving is even over.
Or Halloween. There is just something wrong with having the Santa cutout standing next to the horrific zombie cutout. Why don’t they just go all the way and start putting up zombie Santas? That’s how ridiculous this is. Come on people!

Not only is it really annoying to have to sift through Christmas decorations to find your turkey or Halloween candy, but it really ruins Christmas itself: it turns a holiday that is essentially a celebration of family and family values into a money-grabbing scheme. Now don’t get me wrong, everybody should get the chance to make money, but couldn’t they just sell the right things at the right time? I, personally, don’t think we should have to see tinsel and Christmas trees until at least the day after Thanksgiving, but hey, that’s just me.
If you agree, stick it to the man and post a post about thanksgiving.

Fight the power!

Oh, and happy Thanksgiving :)

  1. Couldn't agree with you more. Nice images, especially the turkey. Don't believe that my family unit and I could figure out a way to fit a bikini top and bottom on a tofurkey though.
