Holiday Parade

Yesterday was the 56th annual Holiday parade in Waynesboro. We walked downtown with blankets and chairs as usual. It was sunny but still very chilly. There was cotton candy, and scrambling to collect the candy thrown from the floats, cute dogs dressed as angels, a scary Christmas bunny costume, and Santa on a tractor covered in snow! Now the big tree in town square is lit, and all the wreaths are up around main street. The local radio station has begun to play Christmas music round the clock, and this leads me to believe it is totally appropriate for us to start decorating for Christmas. For me Thanksgiving and Christmas are sort of one big holiday rolled into one, so let the decking of halls begin!

    Honestly, this year is the first year I had ever heard people gripe about Thanksgiving-skipping/early Christmas-decorating, but like you, I also feel like they’re one big holiday rolled into one! What’s wrong with wanting to make the magic of the holidays last just a little bit longer?!?;)
