It is time to gear up for the Holiday Seasons of Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Once Halloween is over, it is time to decorate for Thanksgiving.  Yes, it does say Thanksgiving.  Take time to enjoy our fall season with this holiday that reminds us that we have a lot to be thankful for.  Your customers will appreciate the fact that you are not rushing to push the commercial part of Christmas down their throats. 

Of course, for some decorating for Christmas on November 25th is not practical, then go ahead and decorate on November 23rd.  Be closed on November 24th, enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and allow your employees to do the same.
