Merry Christmas, Twitter

November 1 is a day meant for digging through your kid’s Halloween candy and pilfering the good stuff for yourself. If you don’t have kids, it’s a day for heading to Duane Reade and buying yourself a nice bag of newly discounted pumpkin-shaped Reese’s. On Twitter, however, November 1 appears to be the first day of the Christmas season. Tweets about playing Christmas music. About busting out decorations and sweaters. About sacrificing oneself on the altar of Mariah Carey in the hope that she’ll actually be able to hit those high notes this time. Our apologies to every other holiday between today and Christmas, you seem to have been skipped.

It’s going to be a long two months.
