Thanksgiving is almost completely skipped over in the stores. Each year I add one or two items to my Halloween decoration box (admittedly we have a Halloween problem in this house) and even more to my Christmas box. But when it comes to decorating for Thanksgiving, I barely have any kitsch to put out. This year Bean noticed that I put out special hand towels for Halloween. As soon as I said Halloween was over she requested Turkey towels. I was THRILLED. She and I made time for a special trek out in search of Turkey towels. And then we made a second trek... Then a third!
We found more items with Santa on them than we could count, but there was not a single cute Thanksgiving item left on the shelves. We did find a very unattractive table top turkey, but Bean looked at it and frowned. Thankfully she was eventually content with a turkey t-shirt and some towels with fall leaves on them, but I am SOOO disappointed! Next year I'm going to have to tackle the turkey towel acquisition starting in September. It feels so wrong.
