In our house, we – or at least I – like to celebrate my holidays one at a time. I want to enjoy Valentine’s Day all the way up until the 14th of February without starting to see the signs of St. Patrick’s Day. Call me a traditionalist. Can you see where this is going?
I’ve been seeing Christmas decorations in the stores since the last week of August when I was still focused on back to school, forget Halloween, forget Thanksgiving. Being that I live in Chicago, I do understand why people put up their outdoor lights “early” (my opinion, of course), but turning them on is beyond me.
I’m not the only one with this opinion – and I swear I haven’t expressed it in front of her at all. Little Miss walked up to me yesterday with a very unhappy look on her face.
Mommy. Why do people have their Christmas lights up already? Don’t they know it’s not Christmastime yet? I think they forgot to celebrate Thanksgiving!
Yes. That is a pilgrim’s bonnet that Little Miss made in school. And yes, she is planning to wear it to my parents’ house later today for Thanksgiving dinner.
With that note, a Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I hope you have a wonderful day filled with family and friends and lots of turkey!
