Maybe it's just me, but it seems like the Christmas season starts earlier and earlier every year. I mean really, it is the week of Thanksgiving and all the stores have out Christmas decorations and are playing Christmas music. I swear last year I remember hearing the first Christmas song of the season while doing my annual "Day after Thanksgiving Shopping".
Annoying, yes...but acceptable. At least it was AFTER Thanksgiving! Yesterday I heard Christmas music playing in a few stores, and the radio station debuted a new Christmas song!! That is just NOT acceptable to me! Maybe someone needs to write a few Thanksgiving songs if everyone feels the need to hear "holiday" music at this time of year.
Are we eventually just going to skip over Thanksgiving altogether? I like to keep up my fall decorations until at least the weekend after Thanksgiving, but found myself taking down all of my pumpkins and cornucopias today......I saw Christmas lights and reindeer in more than one yard yesterday. I have a feeling in a few years, we will have to unwrap our turkey and dressing because "Isn't that what Thanksgiving is all about?"
As much as I like Christmas, I still enjoy the fall season too!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
