Sissy and I baked the gingerbread house pieces today. We're getting fairly proficient at this whole process. Start to finish was two hours. After seeing all of them stacked up in the pan, I almost started whistling, "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas."
We're going to decorate them on Saturday. We just can't do it before Thanksgiving. That's not right. Not right at all.
No skipping over Thanksgiving.
I stopped at the local market to get the candy for the houses and had a conversation with a few of the employees about working on Thanksgiving day. I was glad to hear that the market is closed that day so the employees can spend it with their families. Too many stores are starting their early bird sales on Thanksgiving night.
I think that is terribly unfair for their employees. Family is important. We only have a few big holidays a year and people should get to spend them with their families.
Unless you work in the health field or public safety. For those people, thank you very much. Thank you for the hard work you do and thank you for sacrificing time with your family to help others. You are true heroes.
