Give Thanksgiving Its Due

Courtesy of my brother.

I totally agree. I must have my turkey and dressing on Nov. 24 before turning my mind toward Christmas. Of course, I'll start pulling out the Christmas decorations and playing my "Charlie Brown Christmas" CD on Nov. 25. But, not before then. I will wait!

It's Friday, friends. Can I have an AMEN?

so agree! I am a next day decorator, but turkey day wins! We are not ready to jump into it yet! It is everywhere though!

Dearest JMW,

Sure, the one after the other and if possible without too much commercial pressure! Otherwise we will loose the true meening completely; PLUS the joy.
Love to you,

That is too funny! The holidays are always such a whirlwind and then it's over before you know it! I'm hoping to have time to slow down & enjoy everything this year.

Although I can't really relate, as we don't do turkeys over here. And for the little one it's Christmas any day anyway. She insists on Jingle Bells on the way to nursery. Every day since July!!

The picture is very funny! Even if we don't have Thanksgiving I don't want Christmas to start until the end of November.

The coffee shop at the end of the road is already having their sale on Christmas decorations! I know exactly what you mean!
