I asked my husband why he could listen to Christmas music on Thanksgiving but why I couldn't have Christmas decor up. He mentioned that Thanksgiving is the gateway to the holidays. So, I said, then you are okay having Christmas up on Thanksgiving? He said, "Yes." Mind blown. You mean I can have the Christmas tree up during Thanksgiving dinner? He agreed. Then of course my next question …
