NOT SO FAST (Enjoy Thanksgiving FIRST)


Leave it to the Candy Corn Fraternal Twins to put things in perspective re holiday decor! They can be seen having a convo with the Peppermint People in image one of this HT entry.
The corn twins are folks that you might recognize as they first appeared in TLLG's (yours truly) HT entry when I was discussing using a cast of characters for Halloween decor in a prior HT entry http://www.hometalk.com/2442456/group-c-wins-3rd-coin-toss-follow-up-halloween-decor-part-3-of-4)!
AND then, because candy corn is consumed on a couple of holidays, they re-appeared in one of my posts re using a cast of characters to decorate for Thanksgiving @ http://www.hometalk.com/2506939/thanksgiving-decor).
In any event the candy corn twins were a bit miffed that the Peppermint People (the candy of Christmas) showed up to my armoire (Image One) with the intent of visiting my succulent garden for the Christmas holidays when Thanksgiving had not even arrived!
And the corn twins did not hesitate to reprimand the Peppermint People telling them not to rush our lives away. The corn twins chastised the Peppermint People saying "it's bad enough that stores began playing Christmas music before Halloween, but one does not have to succumb to pressure in their home!"
However, the Peppermint People were eager to get a start on the Christmas holidays, even though Advent hasn't even arrived! Finally, the corn twins and the Peppermint People came to an understanding when the Peppermint People slowly agreed to turn their cute faces the other way until after Thanksgiving.
My cast of characters are wise and I invite you, dear HT reader, to follow their example and hold off on decking your halls with boughs of holly till after Advent (a four week period beginning the Sunday after Thanksgiving), BUT, if you cannot hold off to put up your Christmas decor, at least wait until after you have enjoyed honoring the blessings of Thanksgiving.
Having said that, there is an exception, if you are someone who celebrates Hanukah, this is one year you are advised to celebrate it with Thanksgiving (as in image five) since the holidays coincide this year and will not do it again until some time after 75,000AD!
