That having been stolen from Facebook and posted here, I think I'll re-run last year's rant in favor of letting Thanksgiving have its time in the spotlight for a solo act.
"Thanksgiving Comes First" campaign worming its way through cyberspace.
I still abide by that rule.
Some years my kids abide by the rule; others, they get too excited about having their own places to adorn and get ahead of the game.
But never does Christmas appear before Thanksgiving, even at The Son's house where there are 3 young 'uns. Never before Thanksgiving. So, I guess I didn't go totally wrong.
Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday because it's about family and friends and being together, even if only in thought or memory (JB gave me that crafty turkey when our girls were still in pre-school, and it brings her to mind every time I lay eyes on it). So, I'm totally aboard the "Thanksgiving Comes First" train with a one-way ticket! Come on board!
Thanks to Buck and Suldog, in Autumn colors, for establishing and promoting a burgeoning movement. "
Now, I think I'll go bake some pumpkin oatmeal cookies so we'll have something fall-ish to gnosh onm tomorrow evening whilst the Razorbacks trounce the Old Ball Coach, and some other SEC teams play on another network.
