I realize a lot of people don't celebrate Christmas, but I do.
In fact, I am extremely Christmassy. I go all out: I put up decorations (there has to be at least one in every room) and I start playing Christmas songs as soon as Halloween is over.
Now, some people don't like others celebrating Christmas until after Thanksgiving, and I understand their reasoning. It's a holiday that should be celebrated and such.
But here's my reasoning:
Thanksgiving is a holiday only celebrated in the United States (at least in November). Christmas is a worldwide holiday. To me, the world trumps the United States.
Now, for those of you who don't celebrate Christmas, I'm sorry if I come on too strong. I am a very Christmassy-type person.
A question for those who do celebrate Christmas: Do you start putting up Christmas things/songs before Thanksgiving? Why or why not?
A question for those who don't celebrate Christmas: What do you celebrate? Do you get annoyed when other people start celebrating Christmas/other holidays before Thanksgiving?
And last but not least, a Christmas Countdown:
