It’s that time of year again. The air is redolent with the aroma of spices wafting from baked goods. Candlelight flickers. Friends and family gather to celebrate and reminisce.
And the sound of Thanksgiving carols can be heard in the land.
Pardon? You weren’t aware of the existence of Thanksgiving carols? You may as well say you don’t know about the Great Pumpkin!
Anyone who knows The Prude knows she is a Thanksgiving purist.
No Christmas tree, Christmas TV, Christmas cookie or Christmas carol will step foot across her threshold until the day after Thanksgiving.
So over at The Prude’s, with it’s pumpkin-pie-spice redolent aromas and it’s flickering harvest-scented candles and its anticipation of Thursday’s Gluttony-With-Loved-Ones,
you will hear Thanksgiving Carols.
If you doubt for a moment that there is such a thing, take a minute to peruse the playlist. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to see how many songs you can find.
I recommend listening while eating something that has either turkey or pumpkin as its main ingredient.
