Ho, Ho, Hold On…Slow Down this Holiday Season

thanksgiving2 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (11/12/13)—The life we live is fast paced, and before we can even think about one holiday ending the next one is being prepared for.

As soon as Halloween costumes were taken off the shelf, Christmas decorations and lights were filling the aisles of most retail stores. When I was younger, and by younger I mean like five years ago, I remember people taking the holidays one by one, cherishing each one of them for what they were worth.

Now at 23, I feel like I don’t have time to throw away my jack-o-lantern before I have to start hanging Christmas lights. My biggest concern this year is that people will forget about one of the most important holidays of the year — Thanksgiving.

It’s easy to get caught up in the Christmas spirit since our favorite tunes are already being played on the radio, but let’s not forget the time with our families that we can be together and be thankful for everything that we have been given during the past year.

This morning, I woke up and saw snow on the ground and couldn’t help but turn my radio immediately to 94.5 to listen to ‘Frosty The Snowman’ as I got ready for work. Although time can slip away from us and go by fast, don’t forget to give thanks on Nov. 28.

Be thankful for a radio to listen to Christmas music on. Be thankful for a TV to watch football on. Be thankful for the food on the table, and the family you have, who are able to be thankful with you. Be thankful for the season change, and that you are able to walk outside and see the snow on the ground.

Be thankful that you have another year to be thankful.
