What does christmas creep mean?

The slow expansion of the Christmas shopping season

Christmas creep is a term that refers to the expansion of the Christmas shopping season. It slowly extends every year as retail stores look to profit off the spirit of gift giving and decorating.

For some people, the Christmas creep is terrible because they don't like the holiday or think it becomes too long when overshadowing Halloween and Thanksgiving. For others, the Christmas creep is an opportunity to celebrate Christmas for longer and longer periods of time.
