It would be nice to have the spirit of Christmas all year round but sensibility says its justified to start celebrations from the start of December...!
What a load of codswallop.

Just what is the "Spirit of Christmas" ?

Gluttony? Buying gifts that you can't afford to give to people who don't want them? Probably not. But if you observe people's behaviour you might think otherwise.

Peace and goodwill? They're not restricted to late December. In fact, I would suggest that those who are most selfless and generous are like that all year round and don't need a mid-winter festival to be selfless and generous.

True but religious and non religious people often give an extra bit to their usual giving if they have direct debits in place. And others give when there is a big appeal and find Christmas a time for giving to charity.
