On My Official Start

Hope everyone had a good weekend. We ballroom danced Friday night and our dinner group met Saturday night for wrapped, stacked, or stuffed night (we made a tasty dessert trifle that was a hit). Sunday was a tough day as a handbell choir had a special rehearsal for the piece we are playing at Monday’s funeral for our good friend and handbell choir member. This will be a difficult ring.

On to today’s Monday Morning Entertainment theme. Sights and sounds of the holiday season surround us – but when does the season actually start? I imagine many link it to a Thanksgiving-related event as the annual Macy’s parade or the shopping madness known as Black Friday. Then again, the stores spark the spirit by rolling out holiday displays on November 1st, the day the dismantle the Halloween displays.

Others designate the start of the holiday season by something on television. A member of our dinner group told me his official start is when watching the holiday classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with Burl Ives. Mine too, links to the television. Although it is something that we no longer see, but thanks to YouTube, I can see it whenever I want. Let the season begin! Hope everyone has a good week.
