TWQ: When Is It Christmas?

How people perceive it is almost Christmas can be viewed differently by everyone. TWQ (The Weekend Question) asks that this week.

What makes you know when Christmas is almost here? Be as truthful or sarcastic as you wish, and list as many as you wish.

My answers are:

* The Easter eggs are in the shops
* Adverts for next year's vacations are running on the tv
* Christmas cards start arriving in the post.

Now it's over to you...

All you hear while going shopping in the mall is "Christmas muzak"..

1.) Christmas lights adorning streets, homes and commercial buildings galore.
2.) Automobiles with Christmas Wreathes affixed to the front bumpers or grills.
3.) The excited looks of children awaiting Santa's arrival!

When I was a kid, I always knew that Christmas was here when I watched "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" on TV. That show always kicked off the holiday season for me.

These days, I don't know what begins it for me ... I try to ignore all of the commercialism and just wait until I feel Christmas in my heart and that always seems to happen at a different time every year.

When at the end of October all shops are already putting Christmas decorations on everything in the store. When the Town Hall sets out putting lights in every street. When jingles are played on the radio to remind you that it is THE END OF OCTOBER ALREADY and you better shape up and be in the Christmas spirit, or else...

Sad it starts so soon. We have Sinterklaas on 6 of December. Why can't they wait till the old man has come?
