It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I saw my first Christmas commercial before Halloween. Christmas has tried its best to take-over Thanksgiving and now it has its sights set on Halloween. Halloween is a pretty awesome holiday filled with pumpkins, adorable kids in costumes and, of course, candy.  While it may be hard to make a broader moral argument about the importance of Halloween in our lives, it’s what happens in October.  And I’m doing my best to if not live in the moment be close to it. 

Rather than take away from ghosts and goblins of Halloween I held off on the turkey and ‘taters talk until after. Today, I once again take up the banner to Save Thanksgiving. For the next three weeks, all you will hear from me is Thanksgiving – the food, the family and everything I have to be grateful for this year.

Thanksgiving is a great holiday. At a time when budgets are tight and our differences, political or otherwise tear us apart, I can’t think of anything better thing to do than gather those you love around you, share a meal and give thanks for what you have.
Once the turkey has been picked over and the pumpkin pie consumed, then and only then will I discuss Santa and stockings. 

I encourage all of you to do the same. Give Thanksgiving the due it deserves. Take a few weeks to pause before life gets hectic and give thanks for the blessings in your life. And for Pete’s sake, #SaveThanksgiving.

  1. Have a look a sole made of plastic clothes, is usually very soft cheap womens slippers, minor and has a good anti-skid. If you floor was made of wood, the slipper would be the perfect choice, because they will not harm to the wooden floor in all. But the problem in these plastic clothes is their sole of the slipper will soon be wet when in contact with water.
    You can also go to slippers, and polyurethane soles, because they are durable, has good friction resistance and lightweight. These polyurethane soles of the womens slippers on sale will usually cost you more money than usual, and you need to keep away from water while wearing them, because they will have the chemical reaction and the corrosion layer once they get in contact with water.
