What happened to Thanksgiving?

fall edited
(thanks to Edie's "12 days of Christmas" And All a Flutter for the fun 'bunting' idea! I'm not QUITE done with mine, but what a fun quick little craft to do in my spare time)
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! No 'stuff' involved...just being thankful and spending time with family. It helps that I just LOVE fall....but goodness each year T'giving gets more and more overlooked. Halloween moves in and before it's over Christmas decor pops up. There are some that already have their trees up and lights outside....ack! Not for me...I love love love fall and Thanksgiving! I love the cool fall days, I love making snacks for my hubby while he watches Alabama football, I love the leaves, I love hayrides, I love weenie roasts, I love the colors, I love gathering together with family and remembering what we are thankful for !
oh yeah and then there's fall food and the fact that I love all things pumpkin (pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin waffles, pumpkin cupcakes.....)

Love the bunting, I know what you mean about Thanksgiving! So quickly the oranges & gold turn into reds & bright green... Iam tending to spread Christmas into January these days. Not just because I don't want to take down the tree, but just to make the colorful season last a little longer... I still have a few of my halloween-ish things up.... lol

I agree; it is amazing how Thanksgiving Day is being pushed aside. A day dedicated to just saying "thank you" is a treasure.
