It is Still FALL, Right?

Warm, spicy chai and a pumpkin muffin with maple cream cheese.  I love Fall!  I love the leaves and the rainy weather.  I LOVE Thanksgiving!  A holiday to give thanks to God for all that He has done for us.  And we celebrate with a feast! Fantastic!  What is happening to Thanksgiving?  People in my neighborhood have been putting up Christmas lights for the last couple of weeks.  Down came the spiders and Jack-o-lanterns and up went the lights and the blow-up Santa.  What about Thanksgiving?  What about Fall?  I would guess that Americans don’t really like Thanksgiving.  We like food, but not if we have to make it.  And being grateful for anything is a foreign concept.  I am an American, I am entitled to everything, I don’t have to thank anyone, I don’t have to work for anything…(I wasn’t planning on a rant about the problems with this country, just Christmas lights in November.)  Do you know why we celebrate Thanksgiving?  Because our pious forefathers celebrated Christmas as a religious holiday.  No trees or lights or presents and definitely no drinking and feasting.  That is what Thanksgiving is for.  I love Christmas, but I don’t want to celebrate it for 2 months!  What is special about that?  So, I will celebrate Fall and Thanksgiving!  We will have turkey, potatoes, cranberries, white wine, apple cider, and chai and pumpkin everything!  Hooray for Fall!
