They™ have started hanging ludicrous "festive" lights in the park trees. :evil:

Oh, and we also had a try at "Black Friday". Can't you Muricans keep that at home? :evil:

Geez.

Black Friday but no Thanksgiving. Worst of both worlds.

We've had lights on street trees for about a week, but I'm not counting those. They are not particularly "Christmassy" looking and will not come down until mid-January or so. They go well with early sundown.

Another dispatch from the front:

Definitely starting to "look like Christmas", but I haven't experienced anything particularly obtrusive yet.

Except the bell ringers. :evil:

Update:

Nauseating Santa Claus and Grinch music at my local grocery store.

In fact I wouldn't mind at all if they went for Christmas classical music or even traditional hymns. You know, the real Christ stuff.

And no, the hymn is not "traditional" any more if sung melismatically by a chantoosie faking an orgasm. :evil:

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Wait, the list of not-so-benevolent spirits includes one that “spreads treats and amuses children”? That sounds... kinda benevolent.

At the grocery store where I usually shop, the bell ringers have been out since the Monday before Thanksgiving, though something odd happened. When I went to the store a couple of days ago, I saw a young woman in a Santa hat kind of curled up against the wall of the store, disheveled and sobbing. I thought it was perhaps a homeless person having a bad day, though I didn't ask, and I had no explanation for the Santa Hat. On my way out of the store, some 20 minutes later, I saw that the young woman was the Salvation Army bell ringer because she was back at work. I don't know if she had just gotten bad news or was having some sort of breakdown or what. But there has been no bell ringer at the store since.

But it's otherwise very Christmassy in Carson City. The city always decks out all the light poles and such for Xmas and those have been up for a couple of weeks now. And the Big Christmas tree on the Capitol grounds was lit up on Friday.

I certainly wouldn't buy it, but I would wear it if some nice person gave it to me. :)

Your taste is going downhill (even modulo "nice person"). :roll:

Festive Satanic statue added to Illinois statehouse

The move has been criticised on social media by Illinois Family Action, an anti-abortion pressure group.
Satanic Temple monument was added to the #Illinois Capitol rotunda displays. They fail to realize that the little baby in the manger has CRUSHED Satan's head and the gates of hell will NOT prevail. https://t.co/xYXEKeRPus #ILRight #ccot

Yes, your fairy tale is so much more powerful than their fairy tale. . . .

Past decorations in the statehouse rotunda, in the state capital Springfield, have included a "Festivus" pole - a reference to a fictional holiday which was the subject of an episode of the sitcom Seinfeld.

Lots of screaming hereabouts in Illinois over that one.

Does it diss Jesus any worse than all the Santa and Grinch shit being played as shopping music?

I haven't heard a single Christ in Christmas number played in such a venue so far this year.
Not even that maximally annoying version of Little Drummer Boy they always used to play.

Other news:
Some roaming carollers singing "Jingle Bells" on Michigan Avenue in Chicago last evening.
Professional quality singers. They may have been advertizing a threatrical production.
