Public Service Announcement

It is November. If you have your Christmas decorations up already - if you've even considered thinking about maybe putting them up - you are in a state of sin and are an Abomination in the Sight of the Lord, Cursèd for all time.

Christmas decorations are not permitted to be displayed in homes and offices until one week before Christmas day, and are not permitted to be displayed in shops until two weeks before Christmas day.

Thankyou for your attention.

Ye are in error.

The decorations in celebration of the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ are not permitted anywhere until after nightfall of the Vigil (24 December).

They must remain and not be taken down until the Feast of the Manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles, id estThe Feast of the Epiphany of the Lord on 6 January.

All shops, homes and offices must abide by this - as to err on this matter is to risk the life of your immortal soul.

The singing of carols and the playing of music in celebration of the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ is restricted in like manner on pain of death.

Screw you, and your blasted Convention horse. I'm putting my decorations up now.

Decoration up in October is indeed beyond the pale, but I think it's fair game in Advent.
