Alright, apologies to everyone going the opposite direction with this, but I'm just gonna say it: I'm openly declaring war on Christmas.
Kwanzaa and Boxing Day seem to have Christmas' forward-expansion in check, but it's been slowly increasingly encroaching backwards into other holidays. The Hanukkah underground resistance cell has been fighting for hundreds of years, but it's not enough. Christmas has in more recent history established colonial outposts at varying times during the summer, and finally this year it appears to have completely annexed Thanksgiving!
On November 1st the Hallmark channel began their "Countdown to Christmas," bringing us "Holiday Movies / All Day! All Night!" Christmas is currently holding position on the border of Halloween, but how long until it makes its next power grab? I think it's time to fight fire with fire. Rally the St. Patty's day troops with their green brews and red faces, and extend their holiday cheer forward through the year to reinforce the Halloween stronghold. #waronchristmas #youshallnotpass
