I love Thanksgiving time. I think that it is one of my favorite holidays because there isn’t a lot of decorating (a.k.a. – STRESS). Advertisers have basically passed it over – going from Halloween straight to Christmas — and so they haven’t subverted the original intent of the holiday, and you are encouraged to eat lots and take naps – could it get any better? I think not!
