Give Thanks is a daily series of posts through November that chronicle what I’m thankful for. The format is a big deal on Facebook or something.
Huzzah! ‘Tis the season for bitching about other people’s lack of value for the formally instituted holiday schedule!
It’s quite clear I am in the other camp, though. I could listen to “All I Want for Christmas is You” year-round.
My theory is that those who assault cheery contrarians like me is that they are not mad at the music or me. They are mad at what its early arrival represents at its lowest.
A break from tradition. A weakening of morals. A slow attempt to take the Christ out of Christmas.
SELL SELL SELL! HOLY SHIT DID YOU SEE OUR SALE ON THAT TOY THAT YOUR KID WILL ABSOLUTELY DIE WITHOUT?!!!!!1!!?
Shoot the bloated corporate messenger, people, not the awesome holiday music.
