Christmas stuff now goes up right after Halloween. It feels like corporations think they can tell us when and what to celebrate. I don’t like that one bit. Wasn’t one of the things that made the holidays special the fact it is only a small part of the year? Maybe I am just an old fashioned person, but I will not be putting up my decorations until this weekend. Take that corporate agenda having retailers! I will not alter my behavior to suit your agendas.
It’s about that time now… This is one of the few times of year where we all get together and eat a ridiculous meal. There are not gifts, there is no agenda, it is just good food and family. Recently I noticed that Thanksgiving has been robbed of its due time. Retailers have merged Thanksgiving with Halloween and it is just a slew of random orange things being marketed to us consumers.
