    I’ve always wondered how Thanksgiving deserved its own season. It’s nice, but at the end of the day, it’s just families sitting down to eat. Other holidays have that and more.

    Huh, I actually haven't heard any of the newer artists yet this year.

    Listen to Comcast's Sounds of the Seasons Music Choice channel whenever they play Christmas music. Lots of people have been complaining about it for a few years now.

    All I know is that my local radio station plays an even mix of traditional and modern.

    Surprise, surprise. Christmas ads are playing on TV when Thanksgiving isn't even here yet.

    Before we know it, they'll be playing Christmas ads as soon as Summer's over, when it's back-to-school time.

    ...In what way is that good?

    I'm sick and tired of Thanksgiving being ignored and everyone skipping right to Christmas. I love Christmas, don't get me wrong, but why dosen't anyone care about Thanksgiving anymore?

    Heck, they start with back-to-school commercials, and stores start stocking up on school supplies immediately after 4th of July.

    There’s only so much you can do with Thanksgiving. Besides, are we just talking about the U.S.A.? From what I understand, in Canada, it’s a completely different structure.

    Well, it makes sense from a capitalist standpoint. They wanna make as much money as possible. But from a consumer's standpoint, it does seem like regular people are ignoring Thanksgiving more and more. Perhaps with everything going on in the world, it has to do with escapism.

    On the other hand, they now have Thanksgiving Cards, something that I don’t believe existed in the past.

    At least it’s during the week of Thanksgiving and not earlier.

    Anytime after Halloween is cool.

    Key word: Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving comes after Halloween. Thanksgiving comes before Christmas. October month is the month of Halloween. December is the month of Christmas. November is the month of Thanksgiving.

    • If you want to be technical about it, the true Christmas season is really December 25-January 5. Those are the 12 days of Christmas. Any other celebration of Christmas is arbitrary, so if people want to celebrate it in November and December, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Besides, you're only speaking from an American point of view.

    Are we allowed to celebrate Veterans Day in November or does that infringe on its Thanksgiving monopoly too?

    As long as it’s close to Thanksgiving.
