Well, I was so busy stuffing my face and cheering against the Cowboys that I completely forgot to put up my Talk Thursday!
And as much as I love "giving Thanksgiving a chance" I must admit, I get far more excited for the day AFTER Thanksgiving.
Is it the shopping?, you ask.
HECK no. (That is so vehemently no that were this not a family-friendly blog, there would be expletives there.)
Is it the cold turkey sandwiches and sausage ball leftovers?, you ponder.
Is it the fact that I can now listen to as many Christmas jams as I want completely guilt-free?
As you are all (or should be) well aware, I am so against Christmas music before the day after Thanksgiving. However, today is Friday. Some people call it "Black Friday" - I call it "Steven Curtis Chapman/Amy Grant/NSYNC/Harry Connick Jr On Repeat" Day or SCCAGNSYNCHCJORD if you will. (Tell your friends - it's gonna be a thing). Today through December 27th I will delightfully and deliriously listen to a barrage of Christmas music - old, new, croonie, poppy. My ringtones have been set (The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, "Sleigh Ride" and "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies"), decorations will go up tomorrow and Christmas movie watching will commence soon.
So in the general fashion of a holiday mash-up:
What are you thankful for on Black Friday? Do you celebrate Christmas starting in August like the retail stores or do you wait for this day?
Happy Thanksmas! =)
