I don't know why this shocked me....I mean many stores had their Christmas wrappings out early in October. And actually this has been going on for years. But Santa on Nov. 9th? SERIOUSLY?????
Which brings me back to "What ever happened to Thanksgiving?" It seems to get thrown under the rug and is reduced to being the day before Black Friday!
And so I pray, "Lord, please help me to see the beauty all around me in people and in nature....and not get caught up in SANTA ARRIVES with FIREWORKS FRIDAY AT 6!!!
