Wow, an actual timely PartiallyClips!  I usually seem to completely fail at those!

This year, for the first time I can recall, I started hearing people complain about stores putting out their Christmas crap early at least a week before I actually saw any Christmas merchandise in stores.  Facebook was, naturally, the medium for most of these complaints.  And while I do tend to agree that the early oversaturation of stores with Christmas stuff dilutes the spirit of the season, the fact that I heard complaints before I ever saw so much as a scrap of tinsel amused me enough to inspire this punchline.

Mrs. Shoebox, who used to work in retail, hates this strip.

In other Christmas news, Santa apparently just read my wish list from 1991, as I’m going to see Anthrax, Testament, and Death Angel in Worcester, MA tomorrow night.  I look forward to severe neck pain.
