Giving Thanksgiving the Heave-Ho-Ho-Ho
Back at home, I remember that Easter Eggs are sold in the first few weeks of a New Year. But I didn't realise until yesterday just how fast-paced our lives have become.
Just as I've mentally prepared for Thanksgiving, my coffee shops are decorated with Christmas regalia and playing Yuletide CDs. The staff are wearing Christmas hats, and are wishing customers 'Happy Holidays' and not just a 'Good Weekend'.
So what happened to Thanksgiving - did I miss it?! Slow down, folks...let the slow Aussie catch her breath.
