305 – Earlier Every Year

305 – Earlier Every Year

So November 1st, when I walked into work, the radio station we listened to decided to stop playing the same 20 songs it plays every day and instead traded them in for the same 20 Christmas carols everyone plays every year. November 1st. I was sitting there eating Halloween candy and debating my Thanksgiving travel plans, and it’s playing Christmas carols.

Screw. That. Noise. Take back November!

    Hey, at least you didn’t get hit with the Christmas stuff until it was November. I walked into Target last week and they already had Christmas stuff pushing out from the seasonal area.

    I’m feeling with you here.
    I’m still a little traumatized from that one year I saw a store setting up their christmas stuff in mid-august.

    The stores around here started putting the Christmas stuff out at the same time as the Halloween stuff. At first just a small portion at the end of the Halloween gear. Then as the days progressed to the 31st, the green and red slowly cheeped it way down the aisles, consuming the orange and black as it went…

    Ugh, I was assaulted by disgustingly cheery, chirpy, Christmas remix music today. Put me right off my shopping. It just can’t be Christmas until after November 25th, just can’t, them’s the rules.

    You forgot the 5th of November! Where is your Guy Fawkes mask?

  9. Radylan says:

    I didn’t think the stations even play 20 songs during the winter. It always seemed more like 6 or 7 to me.

    The answer to your question, of course, is Penny’s statement in panel 2.
