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!

And Thanksgiving? Sorry, you turkey - you're on your own.

  1. I built a replica of the wreath monster from Nightmare Before Christmas a couple years ago. I am going to display it and try to make another surprise this year. I love Halloween far to much to let it end on November first. Besides, Christmas is about joy and giving. I take joy in Halloween and giving people a good scare. See, it all works out for everyone. :)

  5. Very interesting idea. Oh and I love Christmas, but I love Halloween more. And it might be a way to make us remember that Christmas itself was traditionally a celebration with a gloomy and sinister side: Victorian ghost stories were often set around Christmas (A Christmas Carol belongs to this tradition), the Legend of Saint Nicolas is a gruesome one, the characters of Père Fouettard is a bogeyman associated to Christmas, etc.

  8. I am totally supporting this! I went trick or treating this year and saw Christmas wreaths and garland on display around shops which pissed me off. I don't want to see Jolly St. Nick when It's time to go to the local Haunted mazes.
