(the full quote from the subject line did not fit in... shame. So here it in its full glory: "On the way back they sang a number of tuneful and reflective songs on the subjects of peace, justice, morality, culture, sport, family life and the obliteration of all other life forms.")
Like for birthdays and un-birthdays, there should be 364 un-Christmases when one can freely enjoy Christmassy things without it being Christmas and without feeling the need to let everyone know that there is only *insert number of months, weeks, days till Christmas* Then shops wouldn't have Christmas stuff out in September. And Christmassy things would not magically disappear right after the 26th.
One day, when I'm totally in control of the world and all societies, that's how we'll have things. Un-birthdays, un-Christmasses, un-Valentine's days (or wait, we already have those, they're called dates… but with un-VDs [the non-general disease kind] we wouldn't have to suffer two months of pink and red stuff all over the place), un-Easter, etc.
My world domination plans for the moment are limited to getting most of the say in the tree decorating.
