Bah! Humbug!

Well, it’s Christmas Eve, and I have 10 reasons to be less than thrilled about Christmas:

  1. It seems to start before Halloween now. At least as far as advertisers are concerned.
  2. The Christmas tree sellers that show up in every parking lot so that it looks like small, forlorn forests have suddenly sprouted up all over town.
  3. Reindeer abuse.
  4. Reruns of 40-year-old Claymation TV shows. In fact, reruns of this year’s shows, from Thanksgiving until February.
  5. Ostentatious and tasteless Christmas decorations on homes. Particularly ones that play music. Especially the giant inflatable snow globes.
  6. The “hot” toy that is selling for 500% over list price on eBay.
  7. Black Friday, and the idiots that actually show up at the mall at 3:30 in the morning as if Bruce Springsteen tickets are going on sale.
  8. Poinsettias, the holiday decor that never dies.
  9. Any toy that talks.
  10. The total lack of ostentatious and tasteless Hanukah decorations.

However, have a wonderful holiday, everyone.
