On November 3, 2011, artist Chad Savage tweeted: "The incursion of Christmas into Autumn has me seriously considering leaving my Halloween yard decor up until January. Christmas scarecrows!" Shortly thereafter, he tweeted again saying his awesome wife gave the thumbs up to keeping the scarecrows out.
The following day, the AEIOU and Sometimes Why blog proposed CREEPMAS. Read the original post HERE.
Within hours, the idea caught fire and here we are! The "Creep" is a double entendre, referring to Christmas creeping into Autumn/October/Halloween and to the "creepy" nature of what we're proposing, here. CREEPMAS!
