We just can’t escape the calendar’s enchanting siren calling us into its web of holiday cheer and torment. For those who like to play the host during these delicate months your time to shine is almost here. How do you know if someone is a dedicated entertainer? Well, look at their calendar. It’s filled with colorful identifying marks, counting down the days when they will face their guests, those innocent and hungry bystanders wearing pants with the elastic waist.
We can never be too safe. Our opportunity to be victorious and plant our flag on the mountain we call Thanksgiving is at a short distance. Let’s take our conquest of the holiday season one step at a time. Starting today, Thanksgiving, that stereotypical, turkey eating, football watching, parade loving holiday is just days away. Let’s not waste any more time. Have you ordered your personalized embossed invitations and napkins yet?
The hoopla of gathering with family and friends is enough to make your hair fall out. Last year’s Thanksgiving was a cinch. Deep frying an entire turkey, no matter what the experts say, will not burn your shed down. You are a true holiday planner and any set back is just a part of the job.
Every holiday celebration has its customs. Elements like family tradition and food preference may play a part, but we can all agree that Thanksgiving is spending it with the people we call family. They may be a bunch of goofballs, but they make our life interesting and worthwhile…provided that there are lawyers and a judge present. Send out your personalized invitations because the day is drawing near. Order your personalized napkins or guest towels because it’s going to be a mess. Remember there is no such thing as a tidy or elegant eater, at least, not during this time anyway.
