When the first snowfall comes before Thanksgiving has arrived, do you think of Christmas? I do, but it’s because every year before Thanksgiving people are already playing Christmas music. I’m not saying I don’t like Christmas, but Thanksgiving needs to be appreciated more.
One big reason why Christmas is more popular than Thanksgiving is because of advertisements. Stores are always promoting their Christmas decorations because that is the time of the year that the stores get the most sales. I think Thanksgiving could be a profitable season too, if it was advertised more. People buy lots of food for the time of the year, and that equals money for the stores.
My final piece of proof that Thanksgiving is overshadowed by Christmas is the holiday movies. The Hallmark channel plays Christmas movies months before Christmas has even come, and you barely hear anything about the other holidays on that channel. Movie channels have to play movies related to Thanksgiving too! It’s just not fair!
Those are my reasons of why I think Thanksgiving should be appreciated more. Make sure to spread the love of Thanksgiving in November, and wait to celebrate Christmas in December.
