Welcome Holiday Creep vs. Non-welcome Holiday Creep

We posted recently about Christmas Creep and how it is entirely possible that someday it will be Christmas year-round. Okay, maybe that is a little dramatic- but Christmas is seriously creeping. We looked at some other US holidays and determined which ones we would be (OK) with creeping vs. those we would not (NOT OK). 

The CheckedTwice Welcome Holiday Creep vs. Non-welcome Holiday Creep Results…

January 1 – New Year’s Day

We’re already eating and drinking too much at this point in the holiday season that there really isn’t anywhere for New Year’s to go. NOT OK.

February 2 – Groundhog Day

Um, we’re OK with this only happening once a year. For our sake – and little Phil’s. NOT OK.



Feb. 14 – Valentine’s Day

V-Day is already pretty creepy –pun intended– and an here’s an example, below. Let’s allow the current level of creep but not let it go further. NOT OK.

If we allow this holiday to creep, will we get a holiday day off from work to recover? If so, OK!

Easter Creep is real. Further creep? NOT OK.

May 11 – Mother’s Day

You know what? Mom’s deserve it. OK!

May 26 – Memorial Day

Honoring our country’s servicemen and women of past and present? OK!

June 15 – Father’s Day

Well we gave it to the mom’s – dad’s, you’ve got our vote too. And a new tie. OK!

July 4 – Independence Day

The Fourth of July already rules and we get a day off. Not much more you can ask for here. Plus would you be able to handle all the Mattress Deals? NOT OK.

September 1 – Labor Day

The unofficial end of summer. If this creeped forward – would summer be even shorter? NOT OK.

October 31 – Halloween

You know what, Halloween? We’ve almost had enough of you. NOT OK.

November 11 – Veterans Day

We’d be all for this. OK!

November 27 – Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is pretty great as far as holidays go. Lots of food, family, and football. Let’s let it be its awesome self. NOT OK.

According to our friends at TimeandDate.com there are approximately 5,000 other holidays each year but we didn’t want to bore you. Are there any other holidays you’d support some creeping from?
