It’s almost Thanksgiving! And you know what that means! The Christmas buzz is about to go from a deafening roar to an ear-splitting cacophony!
I really like Thanksgiving, but it seems like it’s getting more and more lost in the shuffle every year. Thanksgiving has devolved into merely a day where you don’t have to go to work so you can go the mall. I hate it, and I absolutely refuse to celebrate Christmas until Thanksgiving is past. No decorating, no shopping (unless my local Barnes & Noble is having a clearance sale, which it IS), and definitely no Christmas music.
My units on Native American music for the adults have been going well. People are enjoying getting some context for our drumming experiences, and we’ve been able to play a few musical games based on tribal games. Starting next week, we’ll be practicing our singing for when we go out into the community and carol for a local nursing home.
I haven’t got much to say today. Thanks so much for reading, and I really hope you have a great Thanksgiving (if you’re in a part of the world that celebrates it that is – if not, have a great Thanksgiving anyway).
