I'm such a curmudgeon. I don't consider it the Xmas season until then- I HAVE to have a break between holidays or I just get stressed/worn out.

Oh, and just give me the size of the image and I can even design the crosses. For FREE. Thanks for listening to your members.

I mean, out of all the Christmas specials that are always on TV, only one of them, the Charlie Brown one, actually references the reason for the season. All the others just focus on the commercial aspect--Santa Claus, being with your family, etc.
Now don't get me wrong. I know there was a real St. Nicholaus (I'm a Catholic, for crying out loud!), but I think we shouldn't forget whose birthday we're celebrating. I've seen some ornaments with Santa kneeling before the manger where Jesus was born. I love that because it puts him in the proper perspective.

I celebrate the birth, death and resurrection of Christ year round, but I don't need the trappings of this season (or any of the others) jammed in my face any sooner than is necessary, and I don't need them to celebrate the event. This is personal opinion, but I think it's something to consider.
