Day 5 – #NaBloWriMo – Premature Holiday Excitation November 6, 2016

Filed under: NaBloWriMo — jerzygirl45 @ 12:01 am

November 5th; just days after Halloween.

Commercial advertisers have completely jumped over Thanksgiving and are already priming for Christmas. I haven’t heard any Christmas carols as I’ve been out and about, but I suspect it’ll be coming soon.

Ads are pushing their Black Friday sales, so I guess that’s their back-handed acknowledgement of turkey day. Because, after all you can’t have Black Friday – which is the day after Thanksgiving – without getting through Thanksgiving, itself.

Although, in the past couple of years the term Black Friday has been broadened, so that Black Friday is not Friday. Well, it is Friday, but these days it tends to start on Thanksgiving. During early dinner. Probably, even during the Macy’s parade. But, of course, before that, there are the Black Friday Preview days. Ugh.

It’s absolutely nuts. Let each holiday be its own season
