It's time to start thinking about the turkeys and the cranberries and the pumkin pies...and then putting up the Christmas tree! Christmas is a magical time for me. I love it from the religious aspect and I must admit that I also love it from the commercialism standpoint. The closer that Christmas gets, the nicer people get. It's the time of year when people actually step back and think of others more than they think of themselves. And I also think that people in general are just happier for some reason.
Whatever the reason is, I love it! It's like you go the entire year, which starts off dark and drab and cold and snowy (at least here in Chicago), and and the year gets better and better until the climax of Christmas (and the after party, New Year's Eve/Day).
So you've been put on notice...time to start turning your thoughts to Thanksgiving and Christmas. But as you do, take a little time to enjoy the last remaining leaves on the trees. Happy November!!
