It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas?





Meredith Wilson is probably spinning in his grave. I'm pretty sure that when he wrote "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" he didn't expect us all to start singing it in mid-October.


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas is it Meredith? Sorry mate, but if you were alive today you would have been going beserk through the aisles of Asda by Halloween screaming, "Not yet you fuckers, not yet"

And if you were on Facebook you would certainly have unfriended a few people, let me tell you.

Not only does Christmas start earlier and earlier each year, I seem to be surrounded by people who can't wait to tell me about it.

I don't NEED a countdown to tell me how many days until Christmas it is. It is the same day every year, it never changes. Christmas isn't exactly going to sneak up on me in a ninja stealth attack is it? And if they did change the date one year, just to mix it up a little? Well I am sure that social media would tell me, one way or the other.


And why does Christmas start so early these days anyway? It is the equivalent of sex with a man unable to orgasm. At first, it's fun, you get into it, you enjoy the build up, you think that you will be able to keep up the same level of enthusiasm all the way through it, but then after a while it JUST GETS BORING.

(Thinks twice about putting a joke in here about emptying Santas sack)


Christmas for me starts in December, if you want to get your presents before then? I'm not going to stop you, but refrain from letting me know about it, I beg you. Or I will deliver them for you to a place only your doctor should see. (and you may need to rewrap them)



What do you think?


Anyone else feel that Christmas starts too soon these days?

Or do you enjoy a good build up and can maintain the momentum for a long time yet?



Let me know.

  1. Christmas isn't until December 25th and I'd really appreciate it if the hordes of eager festive fuckwits would realize this as I for one am incredibly bored of hearing them gushing glitter and baubles out of every orifice when proclaiming ''ERMAHGERD ITZ NURL CRISSMAS!!!1111!!!

    Every. Fucking. Week.

    Please stop..

    1. So do I. But not in the middle of October.

  3. Hear hear!!
    Yesterday was the 13th of November. It was also the first time this year that I've heard ads for Christmas songs albums on TV. It's November for crying out loud... Mentionning the C-word before December is wrong, plainly and simply wrong.
    Oh, and I really enjoyed your analogy (no there is no pun there... not even a tiny one. I swear)

  4. I'm a sucker for Christmas! I adore all of it, and while I may start putting presents away from summertime (I've got millions of children, just spreading the costs...), I cannot handle seeing decorations etc in the shops before now.

    My family are all 1st of December decorating types, so we do need decs in shops, just not in October!

    I've also been working on gift guides since June and prepping craft stuff to sell at craft fayres since September but NOT IN THE PIGGIN' SHOPS PLEASE!

  5. I'm completely with you on this one. It drives me nuts seeing it earlier & earlier every year. I love Christmas Day & the festive period around it but with all the crappy build up starting from October it kind of makes me resent Christmas a little! In the end I get totally bored of it all.
    It's all so the shops can make extra cash, I get that it's their busiest time of year. But really, October?!!
    Christmas seems less about having fun and being with loved ones but rather what everyone is buying and now, WHEN everyone is buying it!

  6. I think it can begin 1st December when I open the first door of mini chocolate goodness. :)
    I have however, wrapped some presents and wrote cards. I'm organised but don't feel the need to make others do the same. Get Christmassy when you want people.

  7. I love Christmas and all the lovely family argumen...sorry, time it includes, but I am against the whole commercial bandwag of it.
    I'm getting organised with gifts and the like but that's mainly a budget thing. For me, Christmas starts after Hubby's boifday on 14th Dec. Until then I will be boycotting the radio and all tv channels that play adverts...CocaCola does not herald the start of the festive season. Bah humbug!

  8. I am one of those people that loves Christmas, I love the build up and enjoy it but there are rules, like no Christmas songs until December, and no writing cards or wrapping presents until then. Also the tree and decorations don't go up until 11/12th December.
