Earlier every year.  
Don't let the calendar fool you. As anyone can plainly see from the Santas and stockings hung without care in your local Balls*Mart, it's that time once more.

The Giftmas Season is upon us.

Yes, I know. It isn't even Foodmas yet, and the holiest day of the fiscal year, the first shopping day after Foodmas, is 3/4 of a month away, yet here we are. Already hearing talk of Giftmas. Lights are being strung, tree lots are preparing for the onslaught of people who haven't gone plastic yet, certain radio stations are readying their all-Jingle-all-the-time playlists, and liberal secularists are sharpening their knives to return to the battlefield in the war on some peoples' versions of the Happiest American Morning since... well, since this morning's official count tallies, really, but let's not be partisan. After all, it's beginning to look a lot like Giftmas.

This Giftmas season, I just want to share in the spirit of the holiday and enjoy the real reason for the season by reminding you that I have an Amazon wishlist under my wife's name. If that isn't a subtle sign of peaceful domesticity, I don't know what is. Go buy something, especially right after Foodmas. Otherwise, Santa will have to feed the elves reindeer briskets this year.

Happy endless fucking holidays, people. Gifts bless us, everyone.

Well due to the decline in October spending is why they are already pushing for giftmas. Another reason is that Balls*Mart has already forcast a fairly large decline in spending for November. Strange that 1 company can dictate the spending of a nation.. isn't that a monopoly?

Hey, I called them "Balls*Mart" for a reason.

Frankly, I'm content to watch people hold onto their money. I'm tired of watching corporate interest fueling social pressures. "Spend more money and you'll have more money!" Consumerist nonsense.

Muahahah! My fiendish plan is working! By renaming the holiday, I take control of the field in the Culture War!
