Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! Holiday of cornucopias, turkeys, and pumpkin pie.
So why are Christmas lights and wreaths going up?!?!? And Christmas music playing?!
For so many people, Christmas begins with Thanksgiving week (or maybe before).
But as for me and my house . . .
There will still be pumpkins . . .
. . . and leafy garlands.
. . . and even pumpkins dressed up as turkeys!
And Thanksgiving will still be decked in oranges and browns (and cute little turkey applique shirts I made with Heat 'n' Bond). The red and green can wait a few more days. Goshdarnit.
. . . and looking forward to drinking Starbucks Thanksgiving blend coffee while watching the Macy's parade tomorrow morning and baking my pumpkin pies. And while I may set a few holly-and-evergreen arrangements on the bookshelf, you can rest assured it is only to serve as a backdrop for the Christmas card photo we're planning to take—and then they will go back into the closet for at least 24 more hours until the pinnacle of the glorious fall season is passed.
Have a very happy Thanksgiving—and give that lonely pumpkin a salute as it stands watch, humbly reflecting the glow of a neighbor's twinkle lights.
