To be fair, Thanksgiving is pretty close to December.
I get frustrated about it too. It's in the commercials, on the radio, in magazines, and in internet ads. We can't escape from it the majority of the year due to "Christmas in July". In fact the only time when we're not celebrating is in August I think(unless you count first day of school). The rest of the months have holidays in them. We're always celebrating, why is that? That tires me thinking about it.
The point is in quiet anticipation for a sacret moment. It used to be- still remember from my childchood. How came, even as a child I understood it, but no one seems get it?
no, why? there's people that get excited for their birthdays months before...
