Halloween is over. What’s next? Some may say Christmas. They would be wrong. The next holiday in this great country is Thanksgiving. This means the following:
Do not put up Christmas decorations–or any decorations–yet. It is fall. Keep a pumpkin on your stoop or something like that. A turkey or something in the front yard would suffice. One great and easy decoration would be to just not rake up any leaves and let them scatter the yard with their wonderful reds, yellows, and oranges. A great way to get in the mood to tell your friends and family how thankful you are for them. Then go plow someone over the next day on Black Friday to get the new Wii.
And another thing: Don’t even think about playing any holiday music before the Friday after Thanksgiving. Some may argue that there is no Thanksgiving music, so it isn’t fair if they aren’t allowed to play Christmas music. Well, here is a suggestion: Talk to people you care about. Make a conversation and tell them that you appreciate them. Recall stories of why you appreciate them. Be nice to them. And something else to focus on is pacing yourself eating until the massive feast of Thanksgiving.
The point is: chill. Don’t try to rush things because life is short enough as is, and be thankful for what you have now.
Unless, of course, you’re getting me the new Wii. Then Christmas can come early.
