I went to the store yesterday in search of some silly, but festive prizes for our church Turkey Trot and after combing the entire store I only found a tiny selection of paper plates and cheap turkey centerpieces tucked away in a random corner. However, the WHOLE store was decked out for Christmas and all prepped for their “Black Friday” sales. (Technically, the sale now starts Thanksgiving evening, but I guess they thought we wouldn’t recognize this as a threat to annihilate Thanksgiving if it was still referred to as a “Friday” event.) We all know that I can be a bit of a grinch when it comes to some Christmas topics, but I don’t think I’m being irrational here. Could you just back off and give us some space to eat delicious food and reflect on how blessed we are for for just a second before we focus on all the things we don’t have? If I could just eat my pie in peace, I would be ever so grateful.
