I'm Just Like Bono, I Am.

Every year I have a policy that I will boycott the company who's Christmas commercial I see first on tv. This punative measure comes as a result of the fact that retailers insist on relentlessly forcing Christmas into my conciousness way too early in the year. I should not have to be thinking about Christmas when I haven't even put the jack-o'-lantern in the compost yet. (To be fair, dealing with the jack-o'-lantern could take weeks, but still.)

I know when Christmas is, it's the same date on the calendar every year. There is no need to remind me.

So this year, I will be boycotting Canadian Tire, since they had a Christmas commercial on television on Halloween night, and that should not be allowed.
