Christmas decorations are up? Ridiculous.

I went to Metrotown mall the other day (if you haven’t gone lately, go! I swear half the shops have changed…), and I finally bought a pair of rain boots. No longer am I a failure of a Vancouverite! because all Vancouver residents wear rubber boots.

Anyways, when I was there I noticed that there were Christmas decorations gracing the ceilings and the atriums. Whaaaaaat?!

C’mon, people.  November has just started.  We haven’t even had Remembrance Day yet. Why are we putting up baubles and garland already?  Can’t we just, y’know, hold it in for another week and a half?

Remembrance Day might not be a fun holiday, yes, but it’s an important one.  Not just for war veterans, but especially for us who have never experienced the effects of war.  I think we do the veterans and the men and women who served in war a disservice by not taking time to just respectfully observe their sacrifice.

What think you?
