Stores started decorating for Christmas even before Halloween passed this year, but a local girl is taking a stand against it.
She wrote a letter, saying stores and neighborhoods are skipping Thanksgiving. In the letter, the 7-year-old says Thanksgiving is important because it’s about giving thanks.
“I don’t feel comfortable that people are putting up Christmas lights because one of my favorite holidays is Thanksgiving,” said second grader Paige Meador.
“It’s something really important to us because it’s about family and that’s what’s most important, and so I’m really proud of her for writing something like that,” said mother Michelle Meador.
Meador says she’s most thankful this year for her family.
