‘Tis the season to sing of turkey

For years I have been griping about the mad rush to get to Christmas as soon as Halloween is over.

Anyway, we’re at it again. In fact, it’s even worse these days. Christmas and Halloween merchandise are side-by-side in some stores, and it just strikes me as wrong, because it just feeds the tendency to steamroll past Thanksgiving — the best holiday of them all in my book — turning a wonderful day of family and gratitude into nothing more than a yuletide warmup.
