We're Approaching That (Brief) Time of Year When 'Christmas' Searches Eclipse 'Porn'

In delving deep into the strange world of Christmas sites, I discovered this fine factoid: at the end of each of the last seven years, searches for 'Christmas' briefly peak higher than searches for the word 'porn.' We're approaching that time of year, and fascinatingly, based on the trends here, I'd have to say that Christmas ain't gonna make it in 2011. Porn will reign all the live long year.

Given this set of circumstances, if I worked for Fox News, I'd start a Christmas-Porn Watch. Porn defeats Christmas; Christmas defeats porn. You just can't lose.
