Christmas comes too soon, they say
We celebrate from Labour Day!
Who’s to blame for this onslaught?
“It must be me,” the adman thought
“We all profit from this spending
In a Christmas never-ending”
“Because we make the Yule appear
A little earlier each year”
“We push it past Remembrance Day.
No matter what the people say”
“Hang tinsel with the Halloween treats
Bring Santa to Thanksgiving feasts”
“Soon nobody will remember
Christmas wasn’t in September!”
But then the adman realized
He had destroyed the things he prized
“Give me back Thanksgiving Day!”
The adman started then to say
“Give the kids their Halloween
You can’t take that away, it’s mean!”
“Our Veterans earned their day of peace
And our respect should never cease”
His next ad said “Let Christmas wait!
No need to rush to celebrate”
All these words are worth repeating”
