Is it “Ho...Ho...Ho,” or "Bah Humbug?" Some people can't wait until Christmas gets here, and others can't wait 'til it's gone, regardless, Christmas will soon be upon us. Sheridan Media's Judy Hagerott hit the streets of Sheridan asking just where is Christmas going?
Christmas...it's right around the corner and some would say it's almost a magical time of year...there's that song...sleigh bells ring are you listening...noooo...that's the Salvation Army Kettle Ringers...in the lane, snow is glistening...wrong again...the snow has melted.
But for sure it's a busy time of year, some would say too busy and too commercial. Listen to Donna Creditor.
Creditor, that's quite a name and for many of us, those credit card charges for Christmas will catch up with us in January and the creditors soon following. J.C. Speaks has teenagers in his family and they think the bigger the present the better, but lend an ear as J.C. speaks.

Earlier and earlier, I was hearing Christmas music in Sheridan's big box store at Halloween time. Now, I think that's a tad bit way too early but Sheldon Bartel doesn't begrudge businesses trying to make an extra buck during Christmas.
Most folks like Christmas. It's just a great time of year. Janet Nowak finds Christmas delightful, but despises its commercialization.
Buy...Buy...Buy...Ho...Ho...Ho...Surprisingly or maybe I shouldn't be surprised but most folks I talked to had this to say about the meaning of Christmas.
Maybe it's time we focused more on the song Silent Night, but I will admit one of my Christmas favorites is “Grandma got run over by a reindeer.”
