Larry Graff, a Chicago reader, regarding a news story about a man who threw a beer bottle at a bartender who had turned on some Christmas music, writes:
“Since Christmas music starts around Halloween, shouldn’t there be a statute of limitations on when it must be halted?”
And the same goes for decorations.
All Christmas decorations should be taken down at the end of the Twelve Days of Christmas.
Twelfth Day is January 5.
And the decorations should not go up again–and the music should not start again–until the day after next Thanksgiving.
Which is 330 days from now.
Ho, Ho, Ho!
