It seems I’ve been on a wild goose chase (those who know me also know that I’m famous for those). This time the chase was for Thanksgiving decorations–specifically pilgrim hats to outfit the barnyard crew (Mr. Big and friends) for their Thanksgiving photo shoot. But wait–it seems that it’s already Christmas. Thanksgiving has been by-passed, or more likely, eliminated, because signs of it are nowhere to be found, although the calendar says it’s coming up in less than a week. What happened?
And now that I think of it, Thanksgiving got the boot a long time ago–I know, because I wrote about it years back and posted it on my previous blog when I still lived in Atlanta. (http://www.nancybabcockwrites.com/2011/07/what-about-thanksgiving/)
So, this ignoring of Thanksgiving is not new…ah…it must be a terrorist conspiracy–isn’t everything? That’s the impression one gets by listening to the news at least. Maybe the turkeys are staging a silent revolution so that fewer of them end up as dinner. If that’s the case, they still have a lot of work to do, because everyone I know still does Thanksgiving–it just must be without decorations, because my research now and in the past shows that there is none to be had. Call Hallmark! Surely this is a major oversight and an opportunity not-to-be-missed.
