They're selling freakin' Christmas trees (fresh ones) in the parking lot!I am convinced that in the near future, there will be no Thanksgiving celebrated in the US. After all, it's a fairly "minor" holiday now, getting absolutely no time in the stores and without any real decorations.When my nephews were young, my sister used to decorate for Thanksgiving, putting up cardboard Pilgrims and turkeys and cornucopia, etc. And the supermarkets all did that too.This year I never saw one "purely" Thanksgiving decoration anywhere. Oh, there were lots of Halloween decorations a few weeks before Halloween and a random pumpkin here and there. But I never saw one Pilgrim or horn-of-plenty.And the local supermarkets put the Christmas stuff IN THE WINDOWS a couple of weeks ago.I'm telling you, in a few years, we'll be saying things like "....remember way back when when there was an actual holiday called "Thanksgiving"?"Christina
