I’ve heard a lot of whining, both in person and via social media, but the early onset of Christmas.
Santa is already at the mall. Christmas music is playing in shops. Holiday decorations are already going up.
It’s true. Christmas has arrived early this year, and every year it seems to arrive earlier and earlier. But if you listen to the whining and complaining of some people, you’d think that twinkly lights and Jingle Bells are tiny stabs to their small, black hearts.
Get over it. Shut up.
Don’t get me wrong: I’m not supporting the early onset of Christmas in any way. I’m merely coming out against whining and complaining about things that don’t actually matter.
Christmas has arrived early this year. It doesn’t matter.
That said, early Christmas gave me the chance to see my first Christmas commercial (from the UK), and it’s brilliant. Right up my alley given the books I’ve written and am writing.
Be sure to wait until the end for the payoff. It’s worth it.
