Twas the night before Creepmas and all through the land
Bloggers were giving Halloween the attention that it so rightly commands.
Christmas had been creeping up earlier each and every year
Till it finally overtook our Halloween and lessened it's dark cheer.
We now see Santa all summer, and that is no lie
Christmas merchandise was for sale, as early as July.
When Autumn came round for retail, we were all quite demeaned
There were 2 isles of Christmas, for every 1 of Halloween.
So this year we take back some time and some space
And creep into Christmas with a grinning Jack-o face.
For the first thirteen days of December we shall happily reap
As we post Halloween during Christmas and reverse the creep.
So join us all now as we start the Creepmas celebration.
For thirteen days of creepy posts from every corner of the nation!
Tomorrow starts the 13 days of Creepmas. If you still do not know what this great movement is about, here is a snippet from the main page to explain :
What Is CREEPMAS?
CREEPMAS is a good-natured push back at Retail America for trying to force Christmas down our throats as early as July. Something has gone seriously wrong with how holidays are marketed to us in the last 5 years. When you go to a major retail store in mid-October only to find they've gotten rid of all their Halloween merchandise in favor of snowmen & Santas, well, it's time to take action!
Something as utterly ridiculous as Christmas trees in August deserves an equally ridiculous response!
CREEPMAS is for those Halloween lovers and Monster Kids who want to say "enough is enough" - if they're going to put their Christmas into our Halloween, then let's put our Halloween into their Christmas! Tim Burton showed us that it can be done with marvelous results, and we're definitely following his lead.
The 13 Days of Creepmas is an online Celebration of Spookiness from December 1 - 13. The idea is to bring a macabre twist to Christmas and the holidays. Get creative and post it on your blog - share your twisted yule visions with the world!
Now bear in mind - this is for FUN. We're not out to ruin other peoples' holidays and sabotage/vandalism are NOT what we're promoting. Leave the neighbors' nativity scene alone. The 13 Days of Creepmas is about how you decorate yourself, your home and/or your life to let the world know that you are a CREEP! Wear it loud, wear it proud!
