Great. Now I'm both hungry and irritated that there aren't any good movies out for my family's annual movie day during Thanksgiving Weekend.

The turkeys look good, though! ^.^

I am glad that the new logo is that of what should have been our national bird.

Yeah... I got a little busy so it took an extra week for me to get to swapping out the punkins. But you have to admit, Mech's little turkey is pretty awesome for only being 16-by-16 pixels!

yeah! turkey.
It really makes me hungry too, Atria.
But I like to see them. It makes me thinks about friends and family all together around a
big dining table.

I knew I should have nabbed a roasted turkey leg at the Ren Fair when I went...
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

You know what? It's now the Christmas season? Do we really need Thanksgiving turkeys out? I think we need crosses instead, to remember the Reason for the Season. :) God bless.

Oh, and just give me the size of the image and I can even design the crosses. For FREE. :) Thanks for listening to your members.

It isn't even the first of December =.=

I'm such a curmudgeon. I don't consider it the Xmas season until then- I HAVE to have a break between holidays or I just get stressed/worn out.

Here! Here! My main reason is I sometimes feel Christmas has become too commercialized. I mean, out of all the Christmas specials that are always on TV, only one of them, the Charlie Brown one, actually references the reason for the season. All the others just focus on the commercial aspect--Santa Claus, being with your family, etc.
Now don't get me wrong. I know there was a real St. Nicholaus (I'm a Catholic, for crying out loud!), but I think we shouldn't forget whose birthday we're celebrating. I've seen some ornaments with Santa kneeling before the manger where Jesus was born. I love that because it puts him in the proper perspective.

First, just so you (and anyone else) know, there is some programming/background code work and general forum mechanics editing that goes into changing out the seasonal stuff, so it's not instant. A slower change may be because we haven't been able to set up all the right pathing for images yet, and we don't have an 'easy' button for doing this sort of thing.

Secondly, we've already been planning (and working on) Christmas things for several months already, so we're well aware. Truth is we haven't had the chance to gather the graphics team together after thanksgiving to start changing things out yet.

Third. I work in retail. I'm not particularly eager to see decorations up much sooner than the 1st of December. I celebrate the birth, death and resurrection of Christ year round, but I don't need the trappings of this season (or any of the others) jammed in my face any sooner than is necessary, and I don't need them to celebrate the event. This is personal opinion, but I think it's something to consider.

Rocky, you're awesome, but you completely missed the point of my post. See the last paragraph of Mecha's post for clarification.

This.

Well, I'm not in retail but I share the sentiment.

I think the Christmas tree lights are the on/off indicators. And I love the new Christmas decorations---the new background for the CAA header is my favorite! God bless!
