Does it seem that we go straight from the end of summer to Christmas these days? We celebrate Halloween with pumpkin carving, a quick day of costumes and over indulging on candy, but then we fly straight into December festivities. But that skips one of my favorite holidays! The holiday where people aren't distracted by decorations. The day where it's all about the food, and the fellowship. The day where we slow down and reflect on what we're truly thankful for. You know, before we spend the next month buying presents, over-decorating, and not appreciating the little things because we're too distracted creating the perfect holiday season.
Don't get me wrong, I am usually at Black Friday bright and early and have been known to have my Christmas tree up and decorated before others awake from their tryptophan slumber. But I feel bad for the forgotten holiday. I think we need to celebrate and give thanks for everything, and everyone, in our lives and allow that thanksgiving to catapult us into the holiday season. So this year, don't rush from Halloween to December. Celebrate Thanksgiving. And if you need some help with your Thanksgiving plans, so you can focus on your thankfulness and those around you, then celebrate Thanksgiving at Omni Amelia Island Plantation. You'll find we're taking care of everything, and that is something you can be thankful for.
