Just like your friend Thanksgiving, you too have come at an inopportune time. The only difference is that you seem to have this problem every year. Now if you would consider moving to February or so that would really work better for me. I have taken the liberty in making a list of reasons why it would be better to wait a few more months to celebrate you.
#1 It is right in the middle of tax season. I can see tax payers that are getting a refund feeling a little better about forking out half a month's salary for gifts that get put in a closet the day after opening.
#2 Switching places with Valentine's day could really work after an election. Heaven knows this country could use a little more love about now.
#3 Most people get a little tired of seeing snow after Christmas, but we still have 4 to 5 months left of it. Everyone wishes for a White Christmas, we can wish for it a few more months and no one will ever even notice.
#4 I might be going out on a limb here with this one, but doesn't the day Feb. 29th have a nice ring to it? It would give me a little more time to plan for Christmas if you only come around every 4 years.
So think about it. I think that it could really work.
