Hasn't the worship of Christmas consumerism swept over us Catholics, too? 

Has it?

Until Christmas I'm in the penitential spirit of Advent.  Part of my penance is putting up with the false materialistic and Protestant concept of "Christmas" before the feast occurs.  Vox has her Christmas shopping done by the end of October (I'm not nearly so organized), but if you do that stuff before Advent, you can ignore the rush and concentrate on Advent.
