Christmas in September?

We cannot deny this annual tradition among us. Christmas is the joyous season of the year.

By tradition, Christians celebrate Christmas in December. Their houses are well-decorated with colorful Yuletide decors, toys, lights, and gifts. Christmas songs filled the air. Children and adults sing traditional carols like Silent Night, Jingle Bells, among others.

This is the common scenario I may see or experience during December. Children in school have their Christmas party, gift-giving (exchanging gifts), Christmas tableau. Adults have their own separate party. They have it with lots of drinks, singing, and merry-making.

Midnight mass culminates the Christmas celebration. People in all walks of life go to the Church and stay in the Church until midnight. They wait until the Christmas eve. They go home after greeting each other. At home, they eat the food they prepared for their "Media Noche".

What about Christmas in September?

On the first day of September, as I wake up I overhear Christmas songs played in my neighbour's radio. Upon hearing it, I am confused. "Do I hear it right?" I ask myself. Imagine "It's Christmastime in the city." What happens?

As I make a shopping in our local mall, I have already seen Christmas decors getting ready. The mall workers are putting up wrapped gifts at the center. This reminds the shoppers that Christmas is near. When in fact, it is about 115 days more to go before Christmas Day.

This scenario breaks the tradition of Christmas. Businessmen, traders are taking advantage of Christmas. They commercialize it for their benefit. The people are also patronizing it.

Christmas in September is fake. It is being commercialized by malls and supermarkets. It breaks the Christmas tradition.
