My Take: November versus Christmas


I had the opportunity to accompany Chris into Target the other evening where the Halloween section was rapidly being replaced by the Christmas-related items for sale. 

What happened to November? They skipped right over the turkeys and the pilgrims. That is a holiday foul!

Maybe it is me; I just do not want to deal with the idea of Christmas. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas, it is the holiday shopping season that I could live without. The advertisements for Black Friday sales are already in full swing--and it isn't even Black Friday yet. 

How about  breather to enjoy the season that is and not rush headlong into the season that is coming.

On Monday evening, we transitioned from Halloween to Thanksgiving. The house is adorned with pilgrims, pumpkins (not jack-o-lanterns), and turkeys.

There is more than enough time for December decorations, when the time comes. Let's not rush the season. I almost wish for January 2nd, when we can begin to get back to a normal pace of life. 

I we are going to rush something, let's skip over it all and get right to April and pool opening season!

Like that is going to happen.

Enjoy November and Thanksgiving. I know at least one member of my family thinks that Thanksgiving is the best holiday, ever! So let's enjoy it!
