I really hate the way that pushing Christmas merchandise has moved so early in the year. Thanksgiving? What's that? Halloween? Who cares; got to deck those halls.
So, among the things I am thankful for is the restraint my landlady and friend, Cheyenne Palisades, takes in delaying the coming of snow and Christmas to Whimsy until a proper time of year. Now that Thanksgiving is over, we can really appreciate it.
