Kamikaze Christmas

Why is it that before the drumstick hits the table, the tinsel is on the tree? The yams don't even have time to linger in the fridge before Black Friday shoppers slug it out in the aisles. Don't get me wrong. I love the eggnog, the house lights, the Christmas specials on TV, the food, the fanfare, but I just can't get into the Christmas spirit yet.

Here's why. My mother-in-law has cornered the Christmas market. This woman decorates the doorknobs of her home. I'm not kidding. She has so many decorations that I suspect if Charmin came out with reindeer-themed toilet paper, she'd wipe her hiney with Rudolph's red nose. How can I top that?
