What happened to Thanksgiving?
I would have sworn it came sometime after Halloween and before Christmas.
Two weeks ago I saw this at the mall while mall walking. He waved at me.
Right behind Santa's backdrop is a huge candy display. Lots of candy for sale. I thought to myself..."thank goodness my kids are grown." They would have been waiting to see Santa and begging for candy. Clever marketing.
I wasn't quite sure if this was appropriate. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.
I guess I'm showing my age. When my kids were little they never would have had a candy display like this next to Santa!
Maybe next year Santa will appear before Halloween! I guess it's only a matter of time.
I worked at Gimbel's Department Store when I was in high school. Back then Santa didn't appear until AFTER Thanksgiving. Of course, back then there was no such thing as Black Friday and stores DID NOT OPEN on Thanksgiving Day either.
Thank you Marshall's, TJ Maxx, and Home Goods for running ads on television this year announcing that you will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. Sounds like a good idea to me!
This past weekend I went to the Christmas Home Tour in Friendswood. The Friendswood Garden Club has been having this tour the weekend before Thanksgiving for 50 years.
It's fun going through the different homes and seeing how they're decorated. I took a few pictures outside. This house had a snow machine, but you can't see the snow in this picture. It was a nice touch. Fortunately, it cooled off this weekend and we're now wearing long pants and light jackets. Snow didn't seem that out of place at all! Last week it was summer and now it's practically winter. Winter to us anyway.
Happy Thanksgiving! Stay home and enjoy the day with family and friends.
