My yearly tradition for many many years. All hail His Grinchiness. Only 31 more days until this commercialized junk is over with and then He can go back into hiding for another 11 months. Meanwhile, I must retire to my workshop where I can plan how to STOP Christmas. Or at least screw it up.

I have some Christmas times in my memory that were not pleasant at all--in fact they were just plain miserable. I try hard not to think of them, it just makes me too sad. Sometimes I talk of those days with a friend, but the people who made them miserable are deceased, so I am trying hard to put them in the back of my mind, or forget if I can.

But why is it 'Merry' Christmas and all other holidays are 'Happy'? What if I wanna have a Happy Christmas and a Merry New year?

@myklj999 yes, you could do that, I don't know who coined the term. Let's ask him?

@myklj999 Brits say Happy Christmas (or at least, they used to... maybe not so much with globalization).

I was waiting for you to finish your Christmas decorating. I hope that you are not successful in stopping Christmas this year, alot of us are waiting for it as we missed it last year due to Mr Covid coming to town.

@myklj999 But this year I really hope that there are no closures, I am not banking on it, but I really hope not. I miss my in-laws and haven't seen some of them in 2 years next month.

I normally wait until the day after Thanksgiving but since the two are exactly 30 days apart this year I did it today instead.

I thought you were going to help Santa this year? Or are you trying to help him by cutting his workload down?

You make me think of The Nightmare Before Christmas, I, on the other hand, will put up my tiny tree and purple light and go whipped on Dec 1 and then proceed to count down the days in December and watch all the Christmas movies I have
