When should you start thinking about Christmas?

Christmas is a season of delight and wonder, but for some it also means headache and worry. And every holiday season the sound of jingle bells seems to come a little earlier. Are you a fan of the "Christmas creep" or do you despise the intrusion on other holidays? Read the full story.

Wanting won't make it so, until many don't shop, ever, at stores who put their stuff out before Thanksgiving.

My wife and I have pretty much exited the "stuff for Christmas" treadmill, but then we don't have kids or grandkids.

I am not Roman Catholic; therefore I do not celebrate "Christ Mass" (yes, that's what "Christmas means).

The early church didn't celebrate the Birth of Jesus either. They just accepted it as fact.

I'm so sick of people whining about "The War on Christmas." Not everyone believes in your bullsh|t. Nut up and deal with it you paranoid f()ks.

Big Business has made every attempt to cheaper and degrade Christmas. And this from the very people the "Conservative Christian" folks support. Go figure.

No Christmas items should be displayed in retail establishments until after November 1.

Christmas creep has made Thanksgiving my favorite holiday. It gets to remain a true day of thanks because the hype pretty much bypasses it.

The time for me to think about Christmas is not really the same as the time that retailers should be hyping it. Start the hype later, please!

And don't have sales on Thanksgiving Day. Treat your employees like humans with families this year, please!

It doesn't matter what I think. It doesn't matter what the WaPo thinks. It doesn't matter what religious people think. This is a commercial holday, and it will be run according to commercial imperatives.

I've seen some stores clear space in their home and garden sections for Christmas decorations as early as Labor Day. I can understand the thinking behind that, but it still gives the feeling that life is only the down time between holidays. For anything else related to Christmas, I would say no earlier than Black Friday. We may be reaching the point where we should just leave our trees up all year and simply switch the ornaments - think of what Redskins fans could do with their trees for the start of the football seasons.
