What Ever Happened To


Christmas lights started popping up the first week of November--right after the Halloween decor came down.

Go online, and see how often Thanksgiving is mentioned--despite the fact that it's only two days away. What has dominated headlines for the past two weeks? Black Friday.

It's not that Thanksgiving really has been eaten up by Christmas [or whatever the PC term is these days]. Culturally, they're both gone, overwhelmed by the festive season of Me-mas.
