I do love this time of year. Between Labor day (September) and President’s Day (February) it’s like a non-stop parade of holidays and shortened work weeks (Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, Day after Thanskgiving Day, Christmas, New Years, MLK Jr. Day, President’s Day). Plus, with the office shutting down the week between Christmas and New Years, there’s even more time off.
But today officially starts the major holidays: visiting family, holiday music, holiday shopping, lights and decorations. YAY! I’ll actually be heading down to the Cape after work this evening to spend the holiday with my parents. And I’ll be returning here by Friday so that I can get together with some cousins I’ve not seen in ages (a reunion of sorts…I’ve not seen one of them in at least 15 years).
Enjoy the holiday, everybody!
*Technically, this song commonly associated with Christmas was originally titled “A Boy’s Thanksgiving Day”, written by Lydia Maria Child in 1844. I guess it’s only appropriate that it be my blog heading today since it incorporates both Thanksgiving AND Christmas.
