okay, i get that to the retail world thanksgiving & christmas are basically one holiday. i’ve even heard it called “falliday”. which is in & of itself, is a bit annoying, for me personally. there are basically just three holidays i decorate for: halloween, thanksgiving & christmas. & to be honest, the only reason i really decorate at all for thanksgiving, is because all i have to do is take down the witches & goblins, leave up the pumpkins from halloween & i’m set. but i do enjoy the lead up to christmas. & i like the fact that christmas has totally different decorations. i can finally put away the orange pumpkins & break out the red decor (which by the way is my favorite color.) so, you can imagine my frustrations when i walk into target the day after halloween to find the store itself decorated for christmas… not totally decorated mind you, but well on it’s way. yet, i’ve learned to deal with the fact that stores & my tv commercials are ready for christmas, it’s just a fact of life. but i do have a problem, when my neighbor’s put up their christmas lights & actually turn them ON, well before thanksgiving has even happened! am i being a total scrooge?
