Oh, the humanity

I had forgotten about this until I saw a link to episodes of WKRP in Cincinnati.

Two unbelievable moments from the Thanksgiving episode of the first season:

Well said -- Holiday version

It's Beginning to Look a lot like ... Holiday written by Red Cardigan at And Sometimes Tea brings it back into perspective.

Like one of those commenting on her post, I remember when Christmas displays went up after Thanksgiving and the sales began in mid-December. Now ornaments and cards seem to pop up in the stores at the same time as the red, white, and blue decorations for the Fourth of July. A few short days ago Santa inflatables were sharing space in front of the grocery store with Frankenstein and Dracula. There's just something Wrong. With. That. Picture -- not to mention the inflatable ghosts hovering near the inflatable nativity scene snow globe.

The children are even picking up on it -- I am being asked to play some of the Christmas CDs in the van. That isn't happening before Thanksgiving, thankyouverymuch.

I'll leave you with some more well said words on the topic:

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store.
"Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!"

How cool is this?

Susan and Janice at 5 Minutes for Mom have an incredible giveaway going on. Somehow I didn't see it when it was first posted, but I have found it now and don't want any of you to miss it! The Retro Giveaway is for either a pedal car, suitcase record player, or a gift certificate to use at their retro store.

So what are you waiting for? Get over there and check it out!
