B from the P: "Why does Christmas Celebration Begin Before Thanksgiving? Should This Be?"
So, right now, at this very moment, Mrs. Mau and I are at my parents house. We have dinner here most Sundays. Anyway, after dinner, my Mom pulled out this huge stack of papers. Lo and behold, this stack of papers is made up of...stuff...that I have produced over the years. Mostly homework-type stuff. Awards. Homemade cards. You get the idea.

Here is a composition that I wrote at the age of 11. It is dated November 16, 1987. I have left the few small misspellings and grammatical mistakes intact.

Enjoy.

Why Does Christmas Celebrations Begin Before Thanksgiving? Should this be?

Christmas celebration begins before Thanksgiving because Christmas is the
more popular holiday. I believe children keep asking and asking parents to
go Christmas shoping until they agree to go. Once they start , they think
it is fun as much as the children do. Then, the get so caught in buying
things for relatives and friends, they don't notice how fast time goes by.

As for Thanksgiving, most people get tired of having turkey for lunch and
dinner day after day after day. Other reasons for this are that before
Thanksgiving, every year, most stores have sales on all turkeys and families
start to have turneys before Thanksgiving even starts.

Back to the subject of Christmas, I think people should not start preparing
for Christmas until the stores start to have sales on everything in the
store. Yes, the lines will be long, but which would you rather be, tired
or broke. I would rather be tired and I think all other people would also
rather be tired over broke any day.

Sigh. Young genius. It seems I've had a pretty cynical opinion on the holidays for a while, huh? I think I still essentially feel this way.

You were THAT profound at age 11?
Wait a minute...that actually doesn't surprise me one bit.
