Momma, is it December?

This is the question on my six year olds mind as we walk into WalMart. I grinned, and softly said, “No honey, it’s not December yet.”

“Then why does everyone have Christmas stuff for sale? Where is the Thanksgiving stuff?”

I have to laugh. I can always count on one of my children to ask the questions that are on my mind, even when I won’t ask them out loud. I can remember three years ago when I went out hunting for a turkey platter. I went to SEVEN stores and could not find one. It was two weeks before Thanksgiving. Nobody seemed to have anything related to Thanksgiving out for sale.

I found one store, just last week, that had goblins on one end of an aisle and snowmen on the other end. Where were the turkeys? the cornucopias? the corn? ANYTHING!

I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to think about Christmas. I’m not even ready for Thanksgiving, and it coming early this year is definitely causing some stress over here. I need time, between holidays, to recoup and prepare. I think this year I’ll skip New Year’s and Saint Patrick’s Day so I can focus on Valentine’s Day and Easter.

    So true! This will be my first year hosting Thanksgiving. I soent all day yesterday, searching shops in the city, looking for Thanksgiving decorations and a platter. No luck! I’m not ready for Thanksgiving, and don’t even want to think about Christmas right now! 🙂

    I did finally find my platter…at KROGER! The best chance I had to find stuff was to check out the grocery stores…even our dollar stores are stocking up on Christmas already.
