They’ve done it, again

12 Nov

Time to break out the holiday tableware. With two weeks to Thanksgiving, I’m told by countless advertisers that the holidays have already arrived.

How can that be? By the looks of our neighborhood decorations, it’s still Halloween! I mean, I haven’t even looked for a turkey. Hadn’t considered it.

But, the advertisers won’t let up. They’ve created a parallel holiday universe, in which Thanksgiving and Christmas merge into one big blob of perfectly-browned turkeys and local newsfeeds reporting that Santa and his elves had arrived at the local mall. Worse, the long lines of willing participants–laughing and waving, as if  Thanksgiving had come and gone…that it was actually time to stand in long, undulating lines of Christmas-sweater-wearing grandmas holding tight to their crushed red-velvet-wearing progeny.

For that, alone, I refuse to go turkey shopping any time soon.

Can’t speak for Kaukab, though. Wouldn’t dare.
