This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — When does the Christmas season begin?

Tom delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Erin, Connie, and Josh:

The day after Thanksgiving leaves a Yuletide window of about a month, plenty of time to reflect on the season and the joy of giving.


MC-B concurs in the result, joined by Mike:

The day after Thanksgiving when Black Friday kicks off the unnecessary consumerism characteristic of the modern Christmas spirit. Happy birthday, Jesus!


Steve dissents, joined by Djere and Chloe:

The Christmas season doesn’t truly start until two weeks prior; lights and trees go up and it all becomes real. Any earlier and you’re just fooling yourself.


David dissents:

November 1.


Job played no part in the determination of this issue.

Next week: What is the most dangerous animal/creature?
