And every damn store around here has Christmas stuff up already! I wouldn't mind if it were actual religious goods, but no, it's the cheap, "Buy lots of things!" kind of crap that has turned Christ's Mass into one gigantic bankruptcy hearing.
Advent doesn't start for weeks. But of course, most Americans today don't even know what Advent is. They just know Santa Klaus. Old Saint Nick.
Saint Nicholas was a bad-ass, by the way. Read up on him. As in, punch heretics in the mouth kind of bad-ass. Yeah.
I love Christmas, but I'm starting to hate the whole "Christmas Season".
