    I am starting to get excited now. I usually try and contain myself until December. But I can see me visiting all the garden centres soon to see their decorations.

    I've been frequenting some of our local stores that have already been stocking shelves with Christmas decorations for about 3 weeks now! I've already bought all the additional lights to go on my exterior display this year. I will be hanging the outside lights next weekend!! However, I won't light them until Thanksgiving night.

    When November comes and Christmas commercials appear I think it's official. Christmas is near.

    Do you mind explaining what Thanksgiving is please? I see it a lot on programs like Friends and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and other american series' and get the gist of it being a Roast dinner, and soemthing to do with native Americans? Or am I waaaay off? Haha! How close to Christmas is Thanks Giving celebrated? Which day of the year? Is it to do with Christmas, or a separate holiday?

    Sorry for the questions. I hope you don't mind me asking but I'm so curious!

    Thanksgiving was originally celebrated by the pilgrims in the 1600's in celebration of a successful harvest and food gathering and hunting. The pilgrims (who sailed from England) celebrated with the Native Americans who helped them get through the year! It was meant to give thanks to God for his blessings and that they had survived the brutal year full of hardships. It did not become a national holiday until years later. It is held on the 4th Thursday of November. It involves eating great food and spending time with family. Traditionally the meal consists of Roast Turkey with gravy, bread/herb stuffing, potatoes, yams, various vegetables and breads, cranberry sauce, and pies (especially pumpkin). The exact menu varies from region to region and family to family. We watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade which kicks off the holiday season and football games! The day after is Black Friday and is the official kickoff of the holiday shopping season! Hope this explains! It is a much treasured and enjoyable holiday!
