Flash 55 - let xmas begin

we’re always in such a hurry
running here and there
don’t stop to smell the turkey
quick, fast, make haste, scurry

so let’s make it an official rule
do only one holiday at a time
pause, savor, appreciate
our time before the yule

but now that thanksgiving is done
we can enjoy our Christmas fun


  1. ha, i think they started promo-ing christmas in march this year....smiles..
    i def think we should learn to pause a whole lot more
    hope you had a great thanksgiving vanessa

  2. Yep FINALLY!!!!
    Now I can get into the hoopla in a timely manner.
    Loved your "Hurry Up And Get T-Day Over' 55
    Thanks for playing, LOVED your sketch Vanessa...Very Cool!
    Have a Kick Ass Week-End

  3. For years now they've pretty well started setting up Christmas decorations right after Halloween. Of course in the Netherworld, we have Xmahannukwanzyule, which pretty well takes care of the whole shebang!

  4. You're so right. We always waited until after my daughter's b'day on Dec. 6 to put up Christmas decorations so her day was undiluted.

  5. We crowd Christmas into Thanksgiving so it doesn't feel like Thanksgiving gets its due anymore. We hardly had time to smell the turkey before some were up and leaving to "shop". I know, I'm cranky, but I'll be ready for Christmas planning after today.The tree and the baking are my favorite things. Have a great weekend!

  6. My own personal rule is December 1st is the beginning of the Christmas season. Up until that day is still Thanksgiving.

  7. Hope you had a great one, my lovely!
