I don’t know about you, but I always find it disconcerting to see a big push for Christmas several months ahead of the event. This year, in particular, I think people are geared to “get it on” with the holidays – and we are already seeing Christmas lights up in homes around our area!
As for me, I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving first. An opportunity to gather with loved ones is always very high on my list of favorite things. We are grateful that we have many of the “fixings” for Thanksgiving tucked in the cupboards and freezer. I know that many are not so fortunate, and I hope that this year – perhaps more than ever – we can all find ways to help those who are going to be hit especially hard by the current rising prices. Most grocery stores also have options at the checkout counter to donate to specific food-related needs. Below are some of my favorite organizations to support and I know they would appreciate any help you can provide.
