The weekend of Thanksgiving is the beginning of many things, depending on who you are. This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. Today (Black Friday) is the official beginning of the Christmas shopping season. And for those with a lot of energy, today is the day to get out those Christmas decorations and light up your house.
And so, on my walk tonight (still walking off those Thanksgiving leftovers), I saw the first decorated house in my neighborhood, all lit up and colorful. Just a taste of what we can look forward to over the next few weeks.
