There's A Burr Under My Reindeer's Saddle

I don't care if it's technically correct or not, but today is not "Christmas Eve Day", it's "The Day Before Christmas." Sheesh.

While I'm on the subject, I spotted a term over on Joe.My.God. that I thought was pretty clever and I'd never heard before. Two days before Christmas is called "Christmas Adam" because Adam came before Eve. Cute!

Happy Christmas Eve Day (snicker) Really, with all the woes in the world, are we going to choose THIS to go to battle on? Is it Ok to just call it "Christmas Eve" as I do?

I think that Eve is short for Evening but can be expanded with poetic license to mean the period immediately preceding a certain time. I found a quote, "On the eve of the French Revolution," which would seem to validate that.

It's the clunky Christmas Eve Day that bugs me!

I call it the most depressing time of the year, but then that's just me.

Marry Christmas to you, fella!

Merry Christmas Gavin! My mother always wanted me to date a gay dentist, I'll have to forward the above clip to her as a reminder of my failure to provide free crowns for friends and family...
