What Happened to Thanksgiving?

I love Thanksgiving.  Sometimes I think I like it better than Christmas.  Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas but Thanksgiving has all the family and fun plus yummy food without the huge expectations and sometimes let downs that can accompany Christmas.  But that's another post.  This post is about the seemingly disappearing Thanksgiving.  It seems like Christmas starts right after Halloween now.  I walked down by the Embarcadero last week on my lunch hour and the skating rink is up as well as all the outside street Christmas trees and lights.  I see red cups and gingerbread lattes in Starbucks.  I love Christmas but I only celebrate it in December. The red cups and twinkle lights have to wait.  I have some Thanks to give first!
