When Is It Acceptable to Start Saying “Merry Christmas”?

It’s the first week of December.  If someone said “Merry Christmas” to you today, would you say it back?  A new poll asked when it’s acceptable to start saying it.  And almost three in four people think it’s still too early.

30% said not until mid-December . . . another 28% said only during the week of Christmas . . . and 7% said not until Christmas Day.

28% said it IS acceptable now.  That includes 21% who said it’s okay starting on December 1st . . . 5% who said sometime in November . . . and 2% who think people should be allowed to say Merry Christmas 365 days a year.  (???)
