If you're reading this...oh,and if you live in America...most likely one or more of your local radio stations has switched to an all-Christmas music format.In fact,they probably did so right after the Halloween weekend.And,of course,they're playing it in the big stores and shopping malls,and if you've got a cable system that includes music channels,and one of them's a seasonal music channel...I think you can all see where I was going with that.
Now,don't worry,this isn't one of those frequent rants against such things.I really don't think there's anything new or different I could say on such a topic.Plus,those who oppose such a view are right...you don't have to really listen if you don't want to.There's any number of ways of avoiding Christmas music without resorting to some sort of scenario straight out of some old issue of MAD magazine.
It got me thinking,however,that as far as I know,there are no songs written specifically for Thanksgiving,other than Over The River And Through The Woods,and I'm not even sure that's the actual title,just the first line.And I was surprised to learn a few years ago that Jingle Bells,one of the quintessential Christmas songs...was actually originally written for Thanksgiving!
Read the lyrics sometime,including the lesser-known,rarely-sung 2nd,3rd and 4th verse...neither holiday is mentioned.The song's just about taking a sleigh ride.
I guess no one,no songwriter or singer,is eagerly rushing to fill the Thanksgiving-song gap,for the same reason the holiday doesn't get as much attention from the big stores...it's just one day,in which we usually get together with family and eat one big meal.Not much in the way of parties,gifts,decorations or costumes.

Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Turkeyday
