Burning question: some of us enjoy Frosty the Snowman appearing in the cold November rains, some of us don’t

From what exactly is ground beef, to who asked Mariah Carey to spoil the holidays, there are things that wondering minds want to know. We ask important questions so you don’t have to.

This week’s inspirational question: “Christmas in November. Too soon, or not soon enough?”

“In those halcyon, pre-pandemic days before the mainstream dumpster fire we often find ourselves trying to get out of, Willy Bob Thornton soaking Willie “Tuggpot” from Bad Santa was my seasonal star. Car radio in the middle of the night clear. I sat at the proverbial bar sipping on my old grandfather and dazzled by a tidings being exchanged. But the past two and a half years of solitude, mandates on and off, rolling caravans of cartoons have me groaning for a little happiness, cold mates , whom he met warm and fuzzy, and great tidings. Merry. So down here on Main Street, we’re lively, shining the joint with tinsel and ribbon for our annual charity game drive, and I pay all my holiday chips and bet on red. I’m scattering. Delight my senses with Gingerbread lattes, talking snowmen, silly sweaters, and a witty center of Santas snaking around the big, tall women’s section. When it comes to getting the feeling of being festive in the present moment, I say ‘Tis the Saison. Cheers.”

“My stock has been hanging on the fireplace for nearly two years. The first time I heard I was against I, it reminded me of “Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron. “Everything that distracts the elderly from the crushing death.”
– Stephen McBain, singer of Black Mountain and the Pink Mountain Peaks

“Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. December is already 1/12 of the year, lol. I’m still playing Santa, so there’s magic in bringing joy to my kid…but I’m not an overly Xmassy person. I worked in retail and bakeries in my early 20s, so I know the pain of listening to Christmas music for two months, all day every day. I’m all out to see my fam and friends and eat sugar cookies, but it’s not my personal bag, Err sack. It’s something more accessible than fun. So yeah, I don’t want any more of it. But maybe I’m just the Grinch because as a kid our dog Raphael—who was named after the TMNT—was hit by a car and died around Christmas time. Actually, we were watching Scrooged when that happened, so there you go.”

“I’m a fan of decorations for December 1st and beyond. It’s nice to have flashy lights to brighten dark days but if we have them on all the time, it becomes dull and almost invisible which seems to defeat the purpose.”
— Isabelle Dunlop from Merge Victorious

“Bah crap. You will never see me put up a Christmas tree or hang icicle lights on my house” until the month starts with the letter “D.” This is coming from someone who has a birthday in December (the 19th – Zeppelin hoodie please). Christmas in November? No, thanks though. Despite Costco trying to brainwash us into believing that seeing Christmas decorations in stores in September is normal, it’s not. It’s like, Dude, it’s not even Hallowe’en yet. Cold. Bottom line, if you’re going to put up your Christmas tree and holiday decorations in November, at least wait until Memorial Day. After all, it is the bravery of Canada’s last generation that allows you to start celebrating the holiday season much earlier. Let’s honor our fallen heroes before we celebrate Santa’s birthday.”
