Christmas Tensions Rising in London, Disney to Blame?

The actions of a militant anti-Christmas group in London who in recent weeks vandalized merchants marketing Christmas cards too soon have many worried about the marketing efforts of the Walt Disney Company in their push to promote their latest version of Dicken’s A Christmas Carol — and what those efforts might do to set off the anti-Christmas crowd.

The London newspaper The Independent is critically reporting that Mayor Boris Johnson has sold out to Disney by allowing them to change long-standing tradition and turn on the famous Christmas lights and decorations of London’s west side on the day the movie premieres. Disney has also some how managed to convince the city to go with a Scrooge theme to their holiday decor this year, just to make the marketing exploitation complete.

The further advancement of Christmas-before-its-time has some worried that the vandalism — and perhaps, violence — will get worse.
