Just wait till all the Christmas commercials start rolling in. I bet there will be a few tomorrow, haha.
I had a web ad in my inbox this morning that literally said Happy Halloween, come look at our Christmas specials. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if I hear Christmas songs on the radio in the morning.
So true…I’ve already seen Christmas commercials, heard Christmas music, etc…good god.
Some places here already started rolling out the Christmas crap a week ago.
A WEEK BEFORE HALLOWEEN.
Wanna know the fun thing?
Walmart has converted their Garden Centers to Christmas and gave Halloween a tiny area. YOU CAN HEAR THE CHRISTMAS SONGS FROM HALLOWEEN!
Guys… Guys. I have seen so much Christmas stuff. So much. Since the middle of this month….. *epicsadface* bastards…. It’s worth mentioning that I live in the south… *sigh* bastards are jankin my funtimes in the seasonal section…. I’ve seen some shit, man. *faceplants on desktop* is it like this in all the magical places of Elswheres!?!?
Funny story, I went to a Halloween concert at a local joint tonight, and afterwards I went grocery shopping, and due to it being so late, all I could hear was the holiday music. This means at 1AM after Halloween night, I was roaming the Walmart aisles in my gothic costume garb while humming Little Drummer Boy.
Considering that it snowed where I live, this comic is very appropriate xD
I’m from Germany and here aaall the christmas stuff (especially all the candy and things) started rolling in… OVER a MONTH ago.. what’s going on? Tiny Halloween area even right before Halloween… huuuge Christmas area months before.. gosh..
What’s going on with that is probably the simple fact that Halloween isn’t much of a holiday in Germany.
I lived in Germany for 2 years when I was a kid. I don’t remember much about Christmas there, except for bits about the tree we had and the chocolate advent calendar. Halloween stuck out more to me, due to my bat costume one year and the big paper lantern festive the school had. I think that had more to do with All Souls Day than Halloween, but I guess that’s part of why I like Halloween more than Christmas.
O.O so it ISN’T just the seat of the Jolly Red Giant… They rolled out the Christmas balls about two weeks ago or so at Macy’s, and the rest of the mall not long afterwards… Very distracting seeing an advert for The Book of Life next to the giant fashion model with a Christmas ball for a bottom
Well, St. Nick/Santa Claus/etc. didn’t get to be the top dog of the Yuletide season by being meek and timid. Seriously, the actual saint upon which some iterations are based was kind of a bad-ass.
It’s just a shame that capitalism and materialism (under the guise of things quite opposite) have begun to edge out the only holiday about which I actually give a shit in favor of Christmas/Yule/[insert your preferred version here].
We were noting that someone a block over from us had decorated their front-lawn bushes with Christmas lights… on October 30.
I said that it would serve them right if someone egged their house ;P
You guys aren’t Canadian are you? In the US, don’t you at least have Thanksgiving to buffer between Halloween and Christmas?
We do, in fact, have Thanksgiving as a buffer…It just never does any good. There are already Christmas decorations on sale at my local Walmart, my ears ring with Christmas songs, even though my family waits until after Thanksgiving to put up Christmas crap the rest of the world does not. €:'<
Oh gates, that’s what last night felt like. I went to work at 8PM and got off work at 6AM. We packed all the halloween packed up and put out Christmas and this is exactly how it felt. XD
We were in Wal-Mart on Wednesday night, on our way to a Halloween party. Wednesday, the 29th of October.
They are already playing christmas carols nonstop. I in my Batsuit and her in her Joker makeup were somehow horrified, appalled and embarrassed.
Only 364 days til Halloween!
Ain’t that the true 🙂
Merry materialistic season! All xmas is about anymore. How much money you can spend. Its why they crank it out so early. The biggest money sink of the year.
(Fun story: A few years ago my very speshul store decided to put Christmas bags out in August. Christmas. In August. On the front wall. Because the district manager said so. And then he came in and said “That’s stupid, move it to a four way.” … Note he didn’t say ‘put it back in the back’ he said PUT IT ON A FOUR WAY. Mmm… work is speshul.)
try having a November birthday its like your months only presuppose is to drag out the slogof advertisements till Christmas i hate it
I feel your pain. November baby myself
THIS IS ALL JACK SKELLINGTON’S FAULT. THE WAR HE STARTED NOW TURNS AGAINST HIM, AND WE’LL SEE HOW HE LIKES IT WHEN THE SHOE’S ON THE OTHER FOOT, EH?!
In all seriousness, all the trappings of Christmas make it very difficult for me to enjoy Christmas, sometimes.
I want this on a T-Shirt!!!
we put out some christmas pre-sale crap in mid september
been there.one that, felt like a bloody idiot the whole time.
We were seeing Christmas stuff on TV and in stores at the beginning of October. Why not have it out all year long, sheesh…
By all that’s holy! DON’T GIVE THEM IDEAS!!!!
My friend dressed as Santa for Halloween…
The only thing missing is the sad turkey.
Well… Oct 31 == Dec 25 #oldcoderjoke
This shows very much why I hate being born Dec. 18. Even though it’s a week away from the obscenely commercial holiday, people think saying “Merry Birthmas” is appropriate and spending more time shopping for their third cousin twice removed from their brother’s wife’s stepmom’s niece than acknowledging the fact I was born.
