Almost Time, But Not Quite
In a few weeks, I'll be using this bag as my everyday purse for the month of December. But until then, nothing, I mean NOTHING that is related to Christmas will be displayed in or outside my house until AFTER December 1st. (Christmas-themed projects that I am currently working on are the only exception, but they're not on display).
Sometimes I think this country has forgotten about Thanksgiving. At least, the real reason for Thanksgiving. Too many of my fellow Americans think of Thanksgiving as a time to worship the almighty dollar. Come to think of it, they seem to see every holiday as a day to worship the dollar, not commemorate our country's heroes and traditions.
You can be sure that I won't be shopping anywhere that is open on Thanksgiving Day. If my family runs out of gravy, so be it. We won't starve. (off of soapbox now)
