You know, Thanksgiving. The one that comes between Halloween and Christmas. Even though, according to stores (and many people out there nowadays) this holiday seems to not be on the radar for as long as it really should be.
In our house, we give Thanksgiving it’s time to shine. I decorate the house right after Halloween and I don’t take our Thanksgiving decorations down until Black Friday. That is our tradition and it’s not going to change.
I read a blog a few weeks back, where she shared that the reason she decorates for Christmas before Thanksgiving is to give Thanksgiving it’s time to shine. She said she can sit back and enjoy it more because she’s not running around trying to get ready for Christmas in her house, that because it’s done before Thanksgiving she’s more ready to celebrate the ol’ turkey himself. I think that just sounds a little absurd.
I just can’t imagine celebrating Thanksgiving with a Christmas tree up & decorated. It’s like you are just celebrating Christmas twice, just minus the presents and Jesus’ birthday one of the two times.
So, since I will be decorating my house in just a few days for the Christmas holiday, I figured I needed to show off our house at Thanksgiving before this holiday is over. Oh, and you might see a little sick Lilah in a few of these pictures. I took them the day she stayed home from school and couldn’t help but taking a few shots of her sleeping off the sickies.
