Christmas Time is Here
Apparently it is time for Christmas. That doesn't really bother me, I'm just always surprised at how early people start celebrating. I always feel bad for Thanksgiving. It is like the ugly stepchild of holidays. Once Halloween is over everyone bypasses turkey day and moves on to the north pole. I would be happy if it were Christmas every day, but I feel guilty about not appreciating Thanksgiving the way I should. I say this because I went to Kohl's during lunch today. Oh my goodness they are having the most amazing sale ever. Everything is 50% off, everything! I got two really cute tops for basically nothing. I was going to look for some fun Thanksgiving decor to have at our house since we are hosting both sides of the fam this year. Nothing. Absolutely nothing involving a turkey, Pilgrim or pumpkin pie could be found. There were lots of candy canes and snowmen, but no gobble gobble. Of course, I spent fifteen minutes looking at Christmas items and remembering how I lied to my entire first grade class and told them I actually saw Santa come down the chimney. They totally believed me. I'm quite convincing. Anyway, I can't wait to make my gingerbread house and decorate my tree, but first I'm going to enjoy every bite of my turkey! Thanksgiving is great enough to demand a paid day off from work so I should give it the respect it deserves!
