Holy Crap It's Christmas in CVS!

You might only get this if you live in America.

Two Sundays ago I when to CVS to help my mother with carrying her bags and groceries. Only yesterday I has been able to purchase Halloween costumes and fake blood and candy of all sorts. But on that day in it's place were giant Santa's and tiny Christmas trees, and the candy from yesterday was 50% off. (I got a whole mouthful of gum for 28 cents). The next week was worse...

I returned the next week once again to help my mother, and any trace of 8 days ago was completely lost. Not a hint that the week before had half off candy and some left-over masks. The candy was now shaped like X-mas trees and jingle bells and all sort of cute things.

What ever happened to the holiday between Christmas and Halloween? Thanksgiving got stiffed this year, overshadowed by it's more famous counterparts. And it's always being left out of the fun. To us it's just a day when we watch football and stuff ourselves silly. I wonder what
Lincoln would do if he found out what his holiday turned into. (Thanksgiving was made into a holiday in America after Gettysburg... I think... but Lincoln did turn it into a national holiday.)

We all take Thanksgiving for granted. So give thanks that you have a holiday to remind you of what you have, not what you don't.
