Oh Come Let Us Ignore It.

I think Christmas will be more fun if I leave my shopping ’til two weeks before the day. Put up the decorations a few days before. I’ll enjoy Christmas Mass and carol singing. Have some nice grub on the day itself. Enjoy the odd good film they put on the telly. Take the decorations down January 6th, and that’s it.

Which is how people used to do it when I were a lad. Let Christmas be celebrated on the day itself, and boycott shops that put up decorations before December. Far too much pressure on people to buy a load of stuff that’ll make them feel slightly cheesed-off on the day itself.
