I just returned from the mailbox dejected.
It is a full three days before I will be sitting down to a large table full of family and friends, giving thanks to God for all of the blessings he has bestowed on our family and eating copious amounts of food turkey and potatoes and pie. And in my hand I am clutching a...Christmas card!
I have spent the last week deleting "Order your Black Friday specials NOW!!!" emails from my inbox and watching Christmas decorations sprout up through the neighborhood. And what about the stores who have been displaying Christmas goodies since Halloween?
I can overlook all of that I suppose but the Christmas card three days before Thanksgiving? It is just too much for me to take. Especially when I haven't even given our Christmas card one single thought.
I would love to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving but apparently Merry Christmas is in order.
