"Christmas came early for Disney. Their latest film 'The Jungle Book', starring Neel Sethi, made $27 million dollars in its opening weekend."
When a happy surprise arrives before Christmas, like a hot new date, awesome gift or magical experience.
Ralph: Oh, man! It's only 10:00 am and that loaf I dropped felt like fire!
Ted: Sounds like Christmas came early.
The expression "Christmas came early" originated in northern New Mexico. In this case, "Christmas" refers to the unique combination of both red chilli and green chilli on your breakfast burrito. The fiery blend has a unique chemical reaction that results in premature bowel movements that are tainted with the fire of the chile. Thus, when one has an excretion after consuming a Christmas breakfast burrito, Christmas is said to have come early.
