On September 19, the Hallmark channel stated they would air Christmas-themed programming beginning November 9. During the last week of October, I saw a note on the Music Choice channel that they would begin their Christmas music programming on November 2.
With the Hallmark channel that’s 46 days before Christmas; with Music Choice it’s 53 days.
In case you haven’t heard The Little Drummer Boy a thousand times or more, now’s your chance to get the Christmas spirit — or grow weary of it before Thanksgiving.
How is it that Muslims are satisfied with 29 or 30 days of Ramadan fasting -- like total immersion fasting -- food, sinful thoughts, bad behavior -- (Better quit here. I don’t wish to incur any Islamic Fatwahs. Perhaps they’ll let me slide for being an ignorant infidel.) and Jews are content with 8 days of Hanukah? Why does the Christian celebration require 46 or 53 days? It only took 40 days and nights of rain to accomplish the Great Flood.
