It has hard put to find anything on the television that isn’t pertaining to the Holiday Season, that is in full swing as I type these holiday words, we just can’t seem to get away from this over abundance of Holiday Spirit.
At the Mall and ALL the other stores have been playing holiday music for the past several weeks and have gone the extra mile to decorate in the most elaborate decorating frenzy ever, it just seems that it is everywhere and it can be a bit over whelming when you are as strapped for cash as I seem to be lately.
One more week and it will all be a memory, hopefully a good one for each and all.
I like Christmas music. Really I do but not all of the time. I really hate it when my favorite station goes to nothing but Christmas music. Worst of all, my two favorite stations to listen to in my car went to nothing but holiday music the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Well I may as well get into the mood and post one of the songs that used to make me giggle like a little girl when I was a kid. Yeah, I admit it! I did giggle like a little girl when I was a kid but I don’t know anyone that didn’t. Being a kid at Christmas was enough to bring giggles to us all. Happy giggling!!
Besides watching football on Thanksgiving Day, my of my favorite things to watch is the news about those who wait for a store to open for days before Black Friday. I wonder of these people are really as crazy as they seem. Going through all that trouble just to shop??
I think I’ll do what I always do and that is to stay home and order my things on the internet. Why fight the crowds when I can have what I need delivered to my house. These people are just not thinking to clearly. They are fun to watch though.
Now that I have moved out from my parents house, Thanksgiving just isn’t the same. I don’t get to go home every year either. That’s the worst part of growing up I think.
I remember how amazing the house smelled the day before and the day of Thanksgiving. Mom would start making potato salad or macaroni, deviled eggs and all of those cakes and pies the day before Thanksgiving. Then on Thanksgiving day, she would get up way before any of us even thought of getting up to start the turkey and ham.
By the time we all woke up, she had it all in the oven and we would wake up starving because the house smelled so good. We usually ate around 2 and the table to overflowing with food. Green beans, corn, yeast rolls, and some years, we had roast duck instead of turkey. Oh how I miss those days!!! I can still smell my mothers cooking when I think about Thanksgiving.
The moon is full in the sky at this time of year. It’s really huge and can be menacing when the clouds are just right. It sets the tone for Halloween and that’s fine with me. I always enjoy trying to give the kids a little scare before they get their treats. It’s a tradition that my father started.
When I was little we always decked out the yard with all manner of scary things. I have taken over this tradition and added to our collection of stuff. My yard will be the envy of all others on the block. I am waiting for tomorrow night!
