And I know I'm going to be accused of being a Thanksgiving-Scrooge, but guess what we did this weekend? (It's the first time we've ever put it up BEFORE that other holiday -- what's it called again?)
For the record, I love Thanksgiving just as much as the next person. What's not to like about thankfulness and lots of good food?
But still, there's just something wonderful and special about Christmas, and I'm glad I'm done with the shopping so the focus can be on giving, sharing, and remembering the greatest gift of all, the Son of God, born in a stable and come to save us all.
