Like most people, I enjoy the Holiday Season. However, there is an appropriate time and place for everything, and it is far too early to begin celebrating the Holiday Season. Celebrating the winter holidays before Thanksgiving opposes the entire essence of Thanksgiving. Rather than spending time with...
