Christmas Observations vol 2

1. Holiday season, in my book, officially starts November 1.

2. Only one holiday should be advertised at a time, and should not be advertised prior to an upcoming holiday.

3. Why are candy canes being sold during Halloween candy shopping? That's nasty.

4. KOIT (96.5 FM): I am fine with you playing Christmas music 24 hours a day. I am fine with you being the "Bay Area's Christmas Station." Start the day after Christmas...not a week before! Sleigh bells should not ring on my turkey!

5. Your Christmas lights...are for Christmas, that means that they need to be taken down. Due date: January 2nd.

6. If you have your lights still hanging up from last Christmas (or 10 years prior) and just plug them in in Dec...then that isn't the point!

7. Why does Santa smell?

8. Am I the only one who thinks that the song "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" is a horrible Christmas song? You're going to traumetize the poor kid seeing Mommy cheating on Daddy like that. Geez.

9. Where can I buy a partridge in a pear tree? (or twelve for that matter)

10. How many Chistmas' is it going to take before Mariah Carey just gives up? (anyone get this reference???)

11. No gigantic Christmas trees in the middle of plazas before Thanksgiving.

12. I do this one, so I shouldn't complain but..anybody find it funny that we take a tree, hang things off of it and then light it up like a big gigantic beacon?

13. Don't forget to reduce your carbon footprint with these nifty solar-powered Christmas lights...hmm why don't these things work? Oh that's right I'm in San Francisco, its foggy and rainy...

14. Does this mean that Rudolph's nose is also solar powered?

15. Apparently Christmas is the only time where plugging something into an electrical outlet in the rain is totally acceptable.
