    and in Walmart the other day they already had up their Christmas tree, had Christmas music playing on the radio, and today in my mail I get their Kids' Holiday Book.....[​IMG]

    What happened to Thanksgiving?! It's NOT just a speed bump to Christmas!

    Same here. walmart, target, and whatever other stores have it up. Its just so you can stock up on presents early. Kind of like brainwashing. Does nayone get free presents on thanksgiving? Nope! just heart burn.

    I absolutely hate it! It so turns me off to Christmas! and we aren't into a lot of material things here, so it just drives me nuts!

    My mom and I were looking for some Thanksgiving craft stuff for the kiddos, and they didn't have any!! [​IMG]

    What gets me mad is there are no thanksgiving songs. Only one from adam sandler.

    I know what you mean. Thanksgiving and Christmas are my two favorite holidays. I love it when the family gets together. [​IMG]

    We just found out they are building a Walmart Super Store in our town. They tried to do this about 6 years ago, and it did not get approved.

    I'm not sure if I am happy about this, or mad.

    Should I be selfish and happy because it's true that their prices ARE lower than the other stores in this town and they have way better clothes selections than our K-mart or JCPenney?

    Or should I stick by my usual world-view and be mad because of all the bad things Walmart does?

    sigh. [​IMG]
