Nick Thelen: Extended holiday

November 26, 2013 

As we round the corner to Thanksgiving, we realize that Christmas is coming up soon. It’s a great time to enjoy time with family and take in that special holiday spirit. Interestingly enough, people seem to start celebrating Christmas earlier each year. Christmas decorations and spirit are often seen even earlier than Thanksgiving!

Every year it seems that we rush Christmas even more. It also takes away the significance of other holidays like Veterans Day and Thanksgiving. In no way am I bashing Christmas, but I just find it interesting that each year Christmas spirit is seen earlier and earlier.
