When Did Thanksgiving Get Lost Between Halloween And Christmas?

Flickr User Gavin St. Ours

 My girlfriend and I are big holiday nerds.  We enjoy filling the house with seasonal decorations to help get us in the spirit of the holiday – no matter which holiday that happens to be.  Last night we went to a local big-chain store – she wanted to stock up on the extra on-sale Halloween decorations and get a head start on a few Thanksgiving themed items. 

In this day and age it’s no surprise to see signs of Christmas in early November,  but we truly did not expect to see what we saw last night.  In the back right corner of the store was the seasonal section with the last bits of Halloween stuff – leftover candy, costumes and house decorations – a nice mix of cheap gems.  However, when we turned the corner for the next aisle – where the Halloween section ended – we were expecting to see a modest section of Thanksgiving decor, but unfortunately this particular establishment decided to go from October 31st right to December 25th. 

No themes of turkeys, cornucopias or pilgrims!  Instead only Santa, Snowmen and Christmas trees!  Is this not America?  Do we no longer celebrate this forgotten holiday in November?  Where’s the thanks!?  Where’s the giving!?
