But UK retailers have been pushing their Christmas tat for a good many weeks already and have attempted to bully customers over (alleged?) shortages of some products - please don't let them extend the 'greed festival' season.
It's too long already!
One or the other is more than enough - I agree with your suggestion of presents on the day of the Kings and then scrap the events of 25 December! If there must be a midwinter celebration, why not do it on the Winter Solstice?
