I just wanted to give a quick shout-out to the Hudson’s Bay Company for erecting its Christmas merchandise displays on October 1st. I had totally forgotten that the Virgin Mary had entered her third trimester until I wandered through the Bay’s stunning array of fake Christmas trees, lights, and ornaments.
I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to shop for my Christmas decorations for the next 75 days. How did we do it in the past when we were only given a month to get psyched up for Christmas?
So, get out there and spend, spend, spend. Isn’t that what the baby Jesus would want us to do?

Blessed are the cynical and jaded for they shall inherit Jon Stewart.
I heard Larry King’s going to do an interview with Baby Jesus on the commercialization of Christmas. It’s scheduled just before the November sweeps week.
Finally! Thanks for the head’s up. I’m in need of a fake Christmas tree.
