Hey, these people are just advocating moving the season up so that Christmas BEGINS the season. I say, expand it both ways! We get our tree soon after Thanksgiving. We keep it up until after New Years. We light an Advent Wreath and read the Bible and sing songs. We play Christmas music. Make a month of it, in other words!

It's a little disgusting to go to bed on Christmas evening, and hear the radio stations already back to playing their regular music. Just chucking the Christmas stuff as soon as the clock strikes midnight.

Since the twelve days of christmas don't even begin until after christmas eve, it's always surprising to me to see trees outside along the curb the week following christmas.
