Starbucks_christmas_cups_2_1 Whole_foods_christmas_2 Just when we were feeling despondent because Halloween the election was over… Starbucks and Whole Foods jump ahead a holiday. Shiny red packages? Snowflakes? Glowing spirits? We know what that’s code for. Overheard in Whole Foods: not exactly carols, but some kind of Christmasy music. Oy. We know the Christian coalition won, but it’s still the first week of November. Time for Pilgrims and Indians Native Americans.

  1. No shopping this year. We’re protesting. Anyone remember when Christmas didn’t start until after Santa showed at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? We’re having stockings (because they’re fun) and homemade gifts under the tree and sending a check off to United Way. Next year, we’ll be basking on an island beach somewhere. I refuse to reward these marketing harpies.
