I’ll admit, I have pumpkin envy. I drive by neighbors’ homes and the local area and I see pumpkins everywhere. They’re so pretty and bright and colorful, and all the Halloween/Thanksgiving decorations are just beautiful. So why don’t I have any? Why aren’t there jack-o-lanterns on my steps? Scarecrows and turkeys on my lawn?
I honestly don’t know. I stopped buying pumpkins several years ago, and I stopped gathering fodder etc for the yard years before that. We live a ways off the road and you can’t really see what’s on our porch or steps unless it’s really large. Plus, to be honest, as much as I love pumpkins and all the beautiful fall decor, I don’t decorate at all for Halloween or Thanksgiving. Nope. I’m a Christmas girl and once November 1 hits the Christmas music comes on, the movies come out and the decorating begins! Yeah, to me Christmas trumps Halloween/Thanksgiving every time. I love fall colors etc, but I just enjoy Christmas more. Guess that makes me a Reindeer. Or an elf.
So where do you fall on the scale? Are you a pumpkin/Thanksgiving person or are you like me and you can’t wait to pull out the Christmas decorations??
