The Holiday America Forgot

Okay, just a short little rant.

Why do we rush through the Thanksgiving holiday?

Tom Turkey’s time on the center of our table is getting more and more carved up by the big guy in the red suit. Christmas trees now hover over the Thanksgiving spread.   Stores are opening up much earlier on Thanksgiving day.

I am a traditionalist. I used to think decking our halls the Saturday after Thanksgiving was early! Now that seems quaint.

So, why are yearning to stretch out the Christmas season?

One day our grandkids will be telling their grandkids– while they celebrate black Friday the week after Halloween– how their used to be this special day called Thanksgiving. The holiday that America forgot! 🙂

    I agree. I love Thanksgiving; Christmas can wait it’s turn.

  3. one more way our country has become more secular….you can’t take time just to enjoy family and be thankful….you can’t commercialize that! I REFUSE to put up any Christmas decorations or do any shopping until December 1!!!
