Happy HallowThanksChristmas
Happy HallowThanksChristmas

It’s my first day back after a nice little break. As I was returning home, I stopped at a large discount store in North Carolina that we don’t have here in Ohio. The name of the store doesn’t matter so much as the perfect HOLIDAY STORM that was in it.

As I walked in I was bombarded by a slew of leftover Halloween candies, pumpkins, costumes and spooky accessories. That is until I ran into a huge HORN OF PLENTY display with everything and anything I might need for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

As I strolled out of that aisle, I was immediately engulfed in a WINTER WONDERLAND, full of artificial trees, light, bulbs, huge stuffed Santas, musical reindeer and elves that would magically repeat back whatever you spoke into their little tape recorder heads.

My severely discounted Halloween Pumpkin Candy Holder was already full of cans of 33 cent cranberry sauce and paper mache pilgrims. Luckily, I was able to find an equally discounted witches cauldron which I filled with marshmallow Santas and green and red light bulbs for a dollar.

I did pay full price for a Santa Sack, which I filled with 30% off Christmas wreaths and cheap, fairly “flammable” garland. I barely had any room left for the two cartons of discounted smokes, which is why I stopped in that particular store to begin with. Ah, but hey – when the Spirit of Hallowthankschristmas hits you, it’s best not to fight it.

Like it or not people, the holidays are here. Embrace it or get out of the way. That discounted SHREK nativity scene is MINE!
