It's the Sunday before Thanksgiving and leave it to the Candy Corn Fraternal Twins to put things in perspective re holiday decor! They can be seen having a convo with the Peppermint People in the image atop this entry. The corn twins are folks that you might recognize as they have appeared in a number of posts here on Blogger. The most recent one being my entry for October 30, 2017, which was National Candy Corn Day.
In any event the candy corn twins were a bit miffed that the Peppermint People (the candy of Christmas) showed up to my home with the intent of being the focus of my decor for the Christmas holidays when Thanksgiving had not even arrived!
And the corn twins did not hesitate to reprimand the Peppermint People telling them not to rush our lives away. The corn twins chastised the Peppermint People saying "it's bad enough that stores began playing Christmas music before Halloween, but one does not have to succumb to pressure in their home!"
However, the Peppermint People were eager to get a start on the Christmas holidays, even though Advent hasn't even arrived! Finally, the corn twins and the Peppermint People came to an understanding when the Peppermint People slowly agreed to turn their cute faces the other way until after Thanksgiving.
My cast of characters are wise and I invite you, dear reader, to follow their example and hold off on decking your halls with boughs of holly till after Advent (a four week period beginning the Sunday after December 3, 2017), BUT, if you cannot hold off to put up your Christmas decor, at least wait until after you have enjoyed honoring the blessings of Thanksgiving.
For your information, all the figurines seen within this post are from More & More Antiques,
a shop on NYC's UWS that has sold my collection of fauna-flora-insect themed postcards, as evidenced in the image directly below taken by Nancy Nelson Mancini.
Every image on a given postcard is from the book, Words In Our Beak Volume One, written from the perceptive of Cam, a female cardinal (pictured below) who visits my rooftop garden where her story is set.
In any event, Steve Mohr, the sole proprietor of More & More Antiques, has said I should contact him tomorrow re his placing the hard-cover version (seen below) of Words In Our Beak Volume One in his shop.
