Thanksgiving in June

Jeez, am I glad October's over. What with both of my kids' birthdays, PACE, Halloween and that stupid time change, I'm exhausted. And where does that leave me? Staring straight down the barrel of the holidays. I hate that as I've grown older all the special occasions have turned into things to "get through" as painlessly as possible. But that's the way I feel about it...and my family isn't even all that dysfunctional.

I would like to start a campaign right here and now to offically move Thanksgiving to...uh...how about June. I only see my relatives at Thanksgiving and Christmas so I'd like to spread it out a little bit more. After we visit at Thanksgiving that doesn't give us much to talk about at Christmas. Moving it would also give a much needed summertime boost to the cranberry and turkey farmers. The retailers certainly don't give Thanksgiving any attention where it is...and the weather in June would be much better for the Macy's parade.

Anyway, here are some pics from my daughter and her boyfriend's Halloween party.

But June might be a little hot for football... Other than that, and the fact that it'd interfere with lots of weddings, it's a good idea.

I think you have a great idea, or we could just move Christmas to July.

You get my vote. June in Germany feels like fall most of the time, so it wouldn't make much difference.

I want to know why the author excluded her picture from the blog post. She must have been out of costume.
