If you're like most people I know, you are sick, sick, SICK of all the Christmas schlock being peddled before the smoke from the last Labor Day barbecue has fully dissipated. My friend Jim makes his case very eloquently as to why this practice needs to be stopped. Not by meddling with legislation or anything silly like that, but by making our disgust with this practice, and our desire for some respect for the holidays, known.
Post about it.

Google "Thanksgiving Comes First".
Patronize merchants like Nordstrom, who don't decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving, and boycott those who do (if possible, of course). Write letters to corporate headquarters!
Spread the word, basically, that Christmas should mean more than being able to buy tinsel along with your Halloween costume.
Besides, anyone who digs Mr. Rogers is more than okay in my book and deserves support. :)
