Ho-Ho-Ho, Trick or Treat?

On Saturday October 31, 2015 (Halloween) our local newspaper carried this cartoon which struck me both funny and strangely relevant. Why? Funny because of the obvious overlap of holidays; relevant because about two weeks ago, mid-October, I already saw exterior Christmas lights lit up on two different homes. Really, people?

"Too early?" asks Santa standing among the trick or treaters. I'll say! Could we not wait at least until our American neighbours have had a chance to celebrate their Thanksgiving on the 26th of November? Better yet, at the risk of sound Scrooge-ish, how about we forgo all Christmas decorations until December 1st at the earliest. In my way of thinking, all "Ho-Ho-Ho's" prior to December are legitimately "Ba-Humbugs!"

That's the way I see it anyway. Ho-Ho-Ho, Trick or Treat?
