TV Tropes Monday: Chritsmas Creep


Tweet of the Day: Hanukkah in the Middle Ages

——-

Ah the holidays are here. String up the lights, get out grandma’s jam recipe and decorate the tree. But wait, it’s only November, isn’t a bit, you know, early? Not according to your local friendly retailer. Welcome to the world of Christmas Creep. Yes, that is a giant dancing Santa atop the holiday candy tree, right there with the turkey and the menorah. The truth is most retailers even break even or run at a loss for most of the year. The Christmas season is where the make their profits before the year ends. So the earlier. For writers is a great way to lampoon capitalism run amok.

And throwing a few War on X-mas jokes a long the way works too.

Happy Holidays!
